The Montshire Museum of Science wishes to thank our generous sponsors, listed at right, for supporting the Benefit Auction.

Sponsorship support means that every winning bid goes directly to the Museum’s educational mission.


Auction decorations

The 2014 Benefit Auction would not have been possible without the generous support of the businesses and individuals who donated items to benefit the Museum. We thank you for your charitable contributions and invaluable partnerships. Each donor is recognized in the auction catalog, and was featured in a Valley News ad following the event.


We wish to thank the many dedicated volunteers whose creativity, enthusiasm, and leadership make this event a success.
