James Bond Event Helps Raise Money for Hanford Reach Center

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA.-  A night full of glitz and glamour kicked off the Hanford Site's 70th Anniversary soiree.

Tri-Citians stepped into the Richland Library and back in time to 1963 Friday night to support the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center.

Guests who attended the Cold War, Casino Royale party met cultural icon James Bond and his Bond Girls, who were protecting important blueprints of a new and super dual-purpose N Reactor from the hands of Bond's arch enemy and nemesis Spectre.

But Friday, there was no fighting.  The "cast" of characters stood side by side to help raise money for the Reach Center to continue developing exhibits and programs. 

James Bond says the whole idea of the event was to recognize the importance Hanford played during the Cold War as part of their fundraising activities for the Reach Center.

The Hanford Reach Interpretive Center is scheduled to open in summer of 2014.
