A portable planetarium will be set up in the church, where participants can enjoy seeing bright, vibrant 360-degree images of space taken by NASA spacecraft and some of the world's most powerful telescopes. The images are projected onto a spherical dome that makes it feel like floating in space!

Proceeds will go toward the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign for African grandmothers who continue to care for children orphaned by AIDS.
