The Women’s Council, a volunteer service organization that supports Rochester Museum & Science Center, recently presented $100,000 to Kate Bennett, CEO, and Dan Menelly, president and chief science officer, during the group’s annual luncheon.
The gift represented a year of fundraising events that included a geranium sale, the eighth annual Garden Tour, the Fantastic Findings Garage Sale and the 47th annual Holiday Bazaar Arts and Crafts Sale.
“We offer our sincere thanks to the Women’s Council for their invaluable support throughout the year and this very generous contribution,” Bennett said. “The commitment of time and energy from these extraordinary women has been a vital ingredient in our overall success.”
The council has donated more than $2 million in support of RMSC since its inception 76 years ago. Email or visit for information.
