Museum of Science & History (MOSH) Presents Second GALAXY Event

CSX is title sponsor of “From Galaxy to Garden” event on February 24, 2024

Jacksonville, Fla. –– January 5, 2024 –– The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) today announced its second MOSH GALAXY will take place on February 24, 2024, with CSX serving as the title sponsor. The event, themed “From Galaxy to Garden: A Whimsical Walk through Florida’s Natural Wonders,” will serve as a fundraiser for the MOSH Genesis capital campaign, which supports an ambitious initiative to create a new, state-of-the-art museum on Jacksonville’s Northbank that will be a dynamic space where science and history intersect, sparking curiosity and encouraging lifelong learning.

This year’s theme marks a shift from the celestial to the terrestrial, bringing the focus from the galaxy’s vastness down to the enchanting beauty of Northeast Florida’s natural world. The gala will be a celebration of the magical and fantastical elements found in our own backyard, turning the spotlight on the diverse and vibrant ecosystems of the First Coast. The setting will transport guests to a world where the magic of nature takes center stage.

Attendees will enjoy live entertainment by Big Bling & the Funk Machine, interactive experiences throughout the Museum and out-of-this-world culinary and cocktail creations from Chef’s Garden.

“We are so excited to welcome the Jacksonville community back to MOSH for our second MOSH GALAXY,” said Katie Borghese, co-chair of the GALAXY committee.

“This event will serve as a reflection on how far we’ve come in the MOSH Genesis campaign, as well as an invitation for supporters to actively participate in the formation of MOSH’s bright future,” said Jill Davis, chair of the MOSH Genesis capital campaign cabinet.

With the support of CSX as the event’s title sponsor, the MOSH GALAXY will gather more than 600 supporters from the region’s business, civic, philanthropic and cultural communities. This event provides an unparalleled opportunity to come together to celebrate and showcase the commitment to the ambitious MOSH Genesis project. CSX’s event sponsorship underscores the company’s commitment to community engagement and support for educational and cultural initiatives.

“As a proud member of the Jacksonville community, CSX is pleased to serve as the 2024 Title Sponsor for this event and to do our part to move MOSH’s vision for the future forward,” said Joe Hinrichs, president and CEO of CSX. “At CSX, we are committed to strengthening our hometown through partnerships that promote education, drive curiosity, and contribute to cultural enrichment.”
