It's time once again for Akron Fossil & Science Center’s annual auction and benefit dinner! On November 2, in addition to our traditional spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and live auction featuring exciting items from all over the nation, the evening will be filled with fun games based off of your favorite game shows!

During dinner, we’ll see if our panel can stump you and your family in a puzzling quiz show. At the end of the night, we’ll pick two lucky families to play our very own Akron Fossils version of “Family Feud” to compete for an amazing prize!
