Hubbs-SeaWorld Supporter Appreciation Barbeque

Dear Friend of the Ocean:Last year, the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute celebrated its 50th anniversary. It was an opportunity to honor all that HSWRI has achieved and recognize the tremendous contributions of time, treasure, and talent we’ve received from supporters like you. In 2014, we look to the future and what the Next 50 years will bring as Institute scientists continue to provide sea life solutions for marine life, humans, and the challenges we share.As we embark on these Next 50 years, we invite you to join us – in spirit, and in person! Our annual supporter appreciation barbeque is back on this year, on September 21st from 11 AM – 6 PM at SeaWorld San Diego. We have a special opportunity for your immediate consideration: with a gift to our Next 50 campaign prior to September 17th, you’ll be invited to the barbeque where you will enjoy delicious food, presentations from Hubbs-SeaWorld scientists, and visits from live SeaWorld animal ambassadors. We’ll celebrate a few folks who have made extraordinary contributions to the Institute in the past year and then set you free to enjoy a few hours in SeaWorld Park. Your gift may also give you the chance to glimpse a whale out on the open sea later in the year (see details below)!
Every gift is precious, whether you have five dollars to give or a thousand. We thank you for your faithful support of our scientists and staff as they strive every day to improve the health of our oceans, ensure the conservation of its precious inhabitants, and promote human-animal connections in the face of a rapidly changing world.

To thank you for your donation, you’ll receive:

  • $100 – $249: Two tickets to the Barbeque
  • $250 – $499: Two tickets to the Barbeque or 1 ticket to the Whale Watch
  • $500 – $999: Four tickets to the Barbeque or 2 tickets to the Whale Watch
  • $1,000+ Society gift: Four tickets to the Barbeque and 2 tickets to the Whale Watch (Society members are also invited to extraordinary HSWRI events when they arise during the year)
