Imagine Award Recipients
Dear Friends of the Imaginarium of South Texas,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Imaginarium of South Texas, I proudly announce the Sixth Annual Imagine Award Dinner, scheduled for Thursday, June 21, 2018, at the Laredo Country Club. The reception begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m.
We board members announce the 2018 Imagine Award honorees:
Pete Mims, Owner of Mims' Family Restaurants
These individuals have clearly supported Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) through their tireless efforts and philanthropic gifts over many years. Their involvement has helped motivate students strive for academic success, while also considering careers in the STEAM fields. They have also made significant contributions to our community by improving the lives of countless individuals and their families.
The strong commitment of our honorees to the STEAM fields has helped us at the Imaginarium develop and implement many initiatives consistent with our mission -- to provide a bi-cultural, creative learning experience to local and out-of- town families primarily through hands-on exhibits that nurture an individual’s sense of inquiry and inspire youth with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM).
I encourage you to sponsor a table to support the Imaginarium's efforts to inspire students to pursue STEAM-driven careers that can improve their lives and the lives of all Laredoans.
During the event we also hold a raffle which helps us raise additional funds. We are asking you for a gift item donation for this raffle. All donations will be recognized in our event program. Sponsors will be recognized at the dinner, in the program, in all print publications, and on the Imaginarium Webpage.
Proceeds will support much-needed operating funds to continue initiatives aimed at enhancing area youths' lifelong passion for learning through educational exhibits and inquiry-based programming that nurture individuals’ imagination and inspiration.
