Discovery Science Place will celebrate its 20th anniversary with "A Night at the Museum: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water" fundraising gala at 7 p.m. today. All proceeds from the event benefit the Discovery Science Place Foundation.

"So many members worked to make Discovery Science Place possible," said Tom Seale, co-chairman of the event. "This event is a celebration of all that Discovery Science Place was, and everything that it will be in the future."

The event, to be held at Willow Brook Country Club, will feature live music, a charity casino and prizes.

Discovery Science Place CEO Phil Lindsey will draw on his Disney design background to "light things up."

"I have some things up my sleeve," he said.

Tickets for the event are $100 and can be purchased at Discovery Science Place, at 308 N. Broadway.
