In April we celebrated 45 years of funding science. 40 of those years have been graced with the leadership and generous philanthropy of Mr. Gordon P. Getty. To honor this milestone, the Foundation created the Gordon P. Getty Grant. We also celebrated with six events, in four days, held in San Francisco and Healdsburg, CA.

On Thursday, April 25th, the events were kicked off by a lecture titled The NeuroEconomics of Innovation, by Dr. Michael Platt of Duke University.

Friday included a visit to Iron Horse Vineyards where Leakey Foundation Life Trustee Barry Sterling, his wife Audrey and their daughter, Leakey Foundation Trustee Joy Sterling hosted a lovely afternoon.

Among the many gatherings, Saturday evening's gala was certainly a highlight. At the gala, Mr. Getty was honored by the Foundation with the Leakey Legacy Award, for his 40 years of exceptional involvement as a Fellow, Trustee, and eventually Chairman of The Leakey Foundation's Board of Trustees.
