The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) is having their annual auction on Friday, April 10.
It begins at 5 pm at SALT waterfront restaurant/Wetlab Bar at RSMAS campus,
which is off of the Rickenbacker Causeway on Virginia Key.
RSMAS is a world-renowned research institution focusing on
all aspects of the marine environment – from the fish of the deep ocean to the
clouds at the top of the atmosphere. It is home to about 250 graduate students
in various disciplines. Every year, the RSMAS Marine Science Graduate Student
Organization (MSGSO) hosts an auction to raise money for the RSMAS Graduate
Student Travel Fund. This fund provides financial support for students to
travel to conferences to present their work and meet prominent scientists in
their fields, as well as to travel for data collection for their research. Such
activities are essential in helping our students achieve their scientific
research and career goals.
Tickets to this event are $15 at the door. Kids under 12 are
$5 and kids under 5 are free. A ticket includes food provided by SALT
Waterfront Restaurant and two beer/wine drinks. There will be a mix of live and
silent auction sessions with great items for guests to bid on. Some items to be auctioned
off this year include restaurant gift certificates, yoga classes, cooking
classes, diving gear, boat rides, helicopter tours, hotel stays, and much more.
