A fundraiser to benefit the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, An Evening with Ginger Zee will offer an intimate look at the world of storm chasing through the eyes of America's favorite meteorologist.

Recently replacing Sam Champion as Good Morning America's Chief Meteorologist and Senior Meteorologist for ABC News, Zee is an Emmy award-winning meteorologist and a former member of storm chaser Reed Timmer's team of experts.

Zee will share the trials and triumphs of her ascension to stardom on Good Morning America, then offer an inside look at the world of storm chasing. Through heart-pounding video and first-person narration, she'll detail some of her most challenging and frightening experiences, including the devastating loss of fellow storm chaser Tim Samaras and his crew in 2013.

The evening will also feature a meet and greet with members of the WMTW News 8 Weather Team and a live video connection with the Observatory's famous mountaintop weather station for an inside look at life and work in the Home of the World's Worst Weather.

The evening will kick off with a cash bar cocktail hour and heavy hors d'oeuvres at 5:30pm, complimented by a silent auction featuring vacation packages, national travel and more. The program will begin at 6:30pm with a live connection with the Observatory weather station, followed by the feature presentation at 7:30pm.

Date:Friday, April 4, 2014
Location:Port City Music Hall, Portland, Maine
Cost:$79 for Mount Washington Observatory members
$89 for non-members
$99 for preferred seating

Tickets for sale at the Port City Music Hall ticket office and by phone at (603) 356-2137, ext. 231. All proceeds from this special fundraiser will benefit the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, helping to support our work in weather observation, research and education on Mount Washington.

In the event that there is severe weather elsewhere in the country and Zee is called upon to follow the storm, her presentation will be given by supporting meteorologists.
