THE BASH3, Imagination Station’s annual fundraiser, infuses the sciences of taste and sound into one unforgettable evening, with a twist. A twist of lemon, that is! Guests will be surrounded by delicious samples from over 20 of Toledo’s favorite restaurants and our signature Molecular Martini. The Motown sounds of the KGB Band will keep guests moving and shaking across the dance floor while our guest mixologists pour it on – with flair! The award-winning Chicosun Las Vegas Flair Bartenders will be serving up our chemistry-inspired cocktails throughout the night. You’ll watch in amazement as bottles twirl, fires blaze and spirits soar!
While your sweet little scientists are at home all snuggled in bed, THE BASH3 gives you a chance to explore Imagination Station and be a kid again! Defy gravity on the High Wire Cycle, enthusiastically bid on your favorite auction items, or grab a cocktail and head for the Gravity Room – however you choose to experience THE BASH3 we promise you’ll have fun and you might even learn a thing or two.
Guests can experience the science of probability first hand with a live auction, silent auction and raffle featuring a collection of exciting items to bid on or enter to win.
