Happy Bday Carl Sagan: Benefit for an RPS Science Program

Belle Isle Moonshine and The Great Big Everything present: Happy B-Day Carl Sagan! An evening to celebrate love, science, and knowledge! Plus 100% of the ticket sales will go to updating the Richmond Public Schools' Thomas Jefferson High School Planetarium. Let's come together to enjoy a night of music, cocktails, art, and story telling while supporting an excellent cause right here in our own back yard. 

For this event we'll have special Carl Cosmos at the bar, mmm! There will also be a group science and space themed art show upstairs involving some of Richmond's best visual artists. Richmond's own Moonchild, Kenneka Cook, will be performing some songs and we'll even have some of RVA's best science minds getting on stage to tell some stories of how Carl Sagan has inspired them and what they're doing with science in Richmond, VA! 

Don't forget to dress up like the birthday boy, too. We'll be doing a Carl Sagan costume and impersonation contest! Billions and billions of opportunities for good times lay ahead on Friday Nov 9th at Gallery5! 

The tickets will be $10 at the door and 100% of ticket costs will go directly to the Thomas Jefferson High School planetarium rebuild efforts! By coming to this show you'll be able to help transport young minds from a class room to the furthest reaches of space and inspire them to consider science, technology, engineering, and math as paths to explore in life! 

"For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love." - Carl Sagan
