Dear (guest name),
I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. Like you, I am deeply invested in the institutions that help our communities and planet thrive.
As you may know, I’m an avid supporter of the Seattle Aquarium and passionate about its mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment. As part of my commitment, I’m serving as a virtual table captain for year’s Splash! virtual gala.
The livestream will be on September 25, starting at 7pm. And you won’t want to miss the week-long silent auction that will go live on September 18. There’s no cost to register and I hope you’ll join me!
This fundraiser comes at a critical time, as the Aquarium recovers from its temporary closure related to COVID-19, and continues to advance vital conservation initiatives to protect the marine environment we all depend on.
Even if you’re unable to attend, I hope you’ll join me in making a gift to the Aquarium’s Resilience Fund. Your gift will help the Aquarium continue to provide the best care for its animals, advance science-based policies to protect marine wildlife, and expand at-home and Aquarium-based engagement and learning opportunities.
