A Cosmic Gallery, an elementary school fundraiser
April 25, 2009 @ 12:00 am EDT
A Cosmic Gallery is a fundraiser for Concho Elementary school in the village of Concho, AZ (eastern AZ, White Mountains area). The school is a K-8 school in an isolated rural area with wonderful dark skies and very low income residents. The Fundraiser will have a poster gallery, moon rocks samples, a planetarium, multi-media displays, speakers, both day and night telescope viewing, and hopefully a telescope farm of amateur astronomers. These and a blatant out stretched hand asking for money to support the school's science, technology and fine arts programs that are threatened by state budget cuts.
April 25th is near the new moon of the month with the anticipation of beautiful dark skies. The event welcomes anyone who wants to attend. For those who can not attend but would like to donate - we welcome you too! For more information we will be posting to a face book page (A Cosmic Gallery) and to the school's website. Please spread the word.
