5:00 to 8:00 PM


The Wagner Free Institute of Science


Honoring Gerianne Tringali DiPiano

Please join us for an evening of cocktails and camaraderie in honor of Gerianne Tringali DiPiano, a groundbreaking pioneer in women's health care. A Sip of Science, the Wagner's signature fundraising event, will be held this year in June, and will extend from the museum into our manicured teaching garden.

Proceeds will go directly towards programs and collection care so that the Wagner can continue to make science accessible to all.

Gerianne Tringali DiPiano is a pharmaceutical entrepreneur who has devoted her career to addressing women's unique health care needs.

Ms. DiPiano is the founder of FemmePharma, Inc., a Wayne-based company that develops pharmaceuticals to treat “diseases and disorders that only affect women or disproportionately affect women.” She serves on the Boards of Drexel University and Saint Joseph’s University, and the Corporate Advisory Board of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation.


Become a Gold, Silver, Copper, Iron or Titanium Sponsor and help support the Wagner's mission of free science education and care of its spectacular national landmark building and collections. Sponsors are prominently recognized at the event and in all promotional materials. They also receive ticket packages for the party.


Join us for a special evening beginning with wine and hors d'oeuvres in the museum, a ceremony honoring Gerianne Tringali DiPiano in the lecture hall, and cocktails, food, and live music in the Wagner's verdant garden. Tickets are discounted for Wagner members and guests under 30.

For questions, please contact Alison Hansen-Decelles at (215) 763-6529 x11 or email Alison Hansen-Decelles.
