Science. Adventure. FIESTA!
July 27th, 2023

Science. Adventure. Fiesta! is a family-friendly fundraiser offering a night filled with great company, a silent auction with something for everyone, kids’ games and activities with the KSS Magic and flare built in, and one lucky winner will be drawn for a giveaway trip to Mexico! Our auction includes premium liquor and wine baskets, kids’ items, home goods, and enticing domestic and international trips to bid on.

This year we are moving the Fiesta from mid-August to Thursday, July 27th so that as many KSS families and local friends as possible can join us to celebrate the summer and KSS’s return to a full slate of programming after the pandemic. This fundraiser will directly benefit our Girls in STEM Program and our General Operations.

Our generous event hosts, Dos Locos Mexican Restaurant, provide a delicious gourmet Mexican buffet and dessert. Purchase VIP tickets to gain one-hour early access to the silent auction, invite a few friends and host a 4-person VIP table, or join us for general admission and purchase individual tickets.

See you for the Fiesta on Thursday, July 27th!

Tickets are available at the door.
