Annual Fellows Dinner and Auction

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Leakey Foundation’s Annual Fellows Dinner and Auction was held on Friday, April 25, 2014 at the historic Chateau Carolands in Hillsborough. The event is a way to acknowledge the Foundation’s patrons whose generous support allows us to continue the mission of our organization, which is to increase scientific knowledge and education.

The gathering of 80 guests included scientists in the human origins field and the donors who provide indispensable financial resources, making possible vital research and exciting new outreach programs. This year marked the 44th anniversary of the event, and the Foundation raised over $20,000 (through silent and live auctions, as well as a raffle) with 100% of the proceeds going toward research grants.
