Splash!2015 Recap

This year’s Splash! gala and auction was one of the Seattle Aquarium’s most successful events to date—thank you to everyone who supported this event!

On Friday, June 5, over 600 guests joined us for a celebration of the Seattle Aquarium and gave generously to support our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment. With your help, we raised $1,020,000 for the Seattle Aquarium’s youth programs and community outreach. This support will inspire young people to care for, steward and advocate for the health of our marine environment.

The impact of these generous donations will:

  • Bring marine science to life for over 40,000 school children;
  • Educate and inspire over 60,000 beachgoers through interactions with Beach Naturalists on low-tide summer days
  • Distribute 35,000 free tickets to community partner organizations such as United Way and the Boys & Girls Clubs
  • Provide free or reduced admission and transportation to the Aquarium for 10,000 underserved students

Thank you for being part of Splash! We hope you’ll join us next year for Splash!2016.
