Following the event, guests were treated to cocktails and a live jazz reception on the Museum’s Arthur Ross Terrace.
The event was co-chaired by W. Jameson McFadden, Holly and Martin Okner, Lori and Zachary Pomerantz, Gaelin Rosenwaks.
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 special events that offer them an intimate view of 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.
