Fernbank Museum’s Annual Lost Oasis Fundraising Party is Set for a Tango on the Arctic Tundra

Get ready for a cool way to beat the summer heat with Fernbank’s Artemis guild of young professionals. On Saturday, June 14, 2008, Fernbank Museum of Natural History will host Lost Oasis: Tango on the Tundra. This summer party benefits BONES for Kids (Building on Experiences in Science), a fund established by Artemis to enrich children’s programs at the Museum.

Lost Oasis combines a fantastic party with a great cause and draws together dynamic and ambitious young professionals who care about the cultural vitality of metro Atlanta. The Artemis guild has been hosting the party to raise funds for Fernbank since 1995 and has successfully grown Lost Oasis into one of the most anticipated cultural events of the summer over its 14-year history.

This year, participants will enjoy live music by Limelight, cuisine from Proof of the Pudding, an open bar that includes specialty Tango-tinis and Cha-Cha Chills, and a fantastic silent auction and prize drawing. The Lost Oasis benefit will honor long-time Museum and Artemis supporters Kevin and Adrienne Maxim. Co-chairing the event are Sam and Ryan Dunlap and Tracey and Darren Moore.

“Darren and I are so excited to be co-chairs of Lost Oasis this year, not only because of this event’s impact on educational programming at Fernbank Museum,” Tracey Moore said, “but also for the chance to renew friendships, be an advocate for a great cause and, of course, demonstrate a regrettable array of dance moves!”
