2023 Collage Annual Gala Sponsors - Honoring the LaMantia Family

International Museum of Art & Science to Honor the LaMantia Family at 44th Collage Annual Gala

Every year IMAS has the distinction of hosting the premier fundraising gala in our community and honoring an individual or group for their outstanding contributions to the museum and our community. This year, the IMAS Board of Trustees and staff are thrilled to honor the LaMantia family for their support of IMAS for over 20 years. The LaMantia family has played a significant philanthropic role for IMAS through sponsorship support from L&F Distributors for museum events and exhibits. Their contributions to our community are numerous – the Stars Scholarship Fund, leadership service on boards and commissions, locally and statewide.

The IMAS staff and Collage committee are thrilled to be hosting this elegant black-tie gala at the museum once again this year. Collage is the most anticipated event of the year in a unique setting among art exhibitions with silent and live auctions, an open bar and live entertainment.

This signature event raises significant funds that directly help the museum fulfill its mission by presenting a wide range of engaging art and science exhibits, cultural events and educational programs to all people, regardless of income level.

Collage Sponsorship directly ties in to supporting the IMAS exhibitions, cultural programs such as Día de los Muertos and Lunar New Year Festivals, Operation Imagination Spring and Summer Camps, and learning spaces including Ann Moore Art Studio and Science On a Sphere (SOS).

IMAS is accepting sponsorship and donations of live and silent auction items at this time. Please contact Anastasia Perez at 956-681-2815 or Aylaia Sifuentes at 956-681-2817 for more information.
