Science of Cocktails is a Buzzing Success!

Last week, we held our third annual fundraiser, Science of Cocktails – and it was SPECTACULAR! The city’s most talented bartenders came together to transform TELUS World of Science into Vancouver’s largest cocktail laboratory, highlighting the chemistry, biology and physics behind their most crafty and creative cocktails. Master chefs from 14 Vancouver restaurants dazzled with mouth-watering food pairings.

With over 1,500 guests in attendance – it was a full house! Together, we raised $276,000 for Science World’s Class Field Trip Bursary Program, which will bring over 8,000 students from underserved schools on a field trip to Science World.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our event partners, brand sponsors, food station sponsors, media, volunteers, Science of Cocktails Committee Members and the BC Chapter of the Canadian Professional Bartenders Association whose support and participation played an important role in the success of this event.
