It’s Auction Time!

Akron Fossils & Science Center’s 12th Annual Auction and Benefit Dinner is fast approaching! This year brings another mystery to be solved as we reprise our CLUE themed mystery dinner night. It’s going to be a fun evening filled with drama, sleuthing, clue finding, and more, all while raising money to support all of the quality, hands-on creation education programming  Akron Fossils and Science Center provides throughout the year.

This year,  Compass Christian Church has once again generously allowed us to hold our auction at its facility, located at 1900 East Avenue, Akron, OH, 44314. On Saturday, November 5th, we will be transforming the church into a live version of the classic mystery game, CLUE, for the second year in a row–but don’t think that means you’ll have all the answers!!

Join Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, and the whole gang to solve A WHOLE NEW MYSTERY at the Body Mansion! In addition to bidding on our many exciting silent and oral auction items and enjoying a delicious spaghetti dinner, guests will have the chance to search for clues and question suspects as they attempt to solve The Case of the Missing Donation: Part II. 

A peek at all of the fun we had at last year’s mystery dinner!



Businesses and organizations from all over the country have generously donated exciting items for our silent auction, oral auction, raffle, and door prizes.With everything from passes to Walt Disney World, Florida, to gift certificates to play a round of golf, there will definitely be something for everyone at this event. What better place to do some early Christmas shopping??

Check out some of the amazing items up for bid this year!

Every year, Akron Fossils and Science Center strives to bring science from a creation perspective to the Akron community through tours, programming, and outreach.  In addition to our hands-on guided tours, AFSC offers a wide variety of science classes, education days, birthday parties, Super Science Saturdays, outreach speaking, and more.

None of this programming would be possible without the support of generous donors and without the funds raised at our Annual Auction. As  largest, single fundraising event of the year, this event ensures that all of this amazing programming continues for another year.

We hope you consider joining in on this fun event and supporting Akron Fossils & Science Center as we prepare to enter into a new year of bringing fun, quality, creation education to the Akron community!

With tickets available at just $10 for adult tickets, $5 for youth tickets and $50 for a family pass, you could say it would almost be a CRIME not to go!!

Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling Akron Fossils & Science Center at 330-665-DINO (3466)
