Samuel J. LeFrak is giving his wife Ethel one hell of a 60th anniversary present--the auditorium in the Museum of Natural History will bear their names after being renovated with an $8 million gift from the couple, according to The New York Times. “New seats, lighting, carpeting, acoustical and audiovisual systems will be installed in the hall, home of IMAX movies, lectures and scientific conferences,” the Times reported, and the refurbished event venue is set to be completed by May 14, 2002. The couple will celebrate their anniversary with a party in the new auditorium following its completion.
