American Museum of Natural History Junior Council Event

The American Museum of Natural History's Junior Council kicked off its 2010–2011 season with a private screening of Hubble and a cocktail reception.

This spectacular IMAX film recounts the amazing journey of the most important scientific instrument since Galileo’s original telescope, immersing audiences in the great wonders and astounding beauty of our universe. Following the screening, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and Zacapa- sponsored rum bar.

The American Museum of Natural History’s Junior Council is one of New York City’s most stimulating membership groups for young philanthropists. Founded in 1994, the Junior Council supports the Museum’s mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate—through scientific research and education—knowledge about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe. Each year, Junior Council Members participate in specially arranged events that offer them an intimate view inside the Museum’s collections, activities, and exhibitions. Junior Council Members go behind the scenes at one of the world’s preeminent museums, meet some of the nation’s most distinguished and engaging scientists, and preview the latest exhibitions.

CO-CHAIRS: Lisa and Paul Canty, Christy Corgan, Sarah J. Crews, Doug and Eva Heyman, Dana Wallach Jones and Michael T. M. Jones, Holly and Martin Okner, Zachary and Lori Pomerantz, Andrew and Zibby Right.
