Every year, Aquarium supporters near and far look forward to our staple events, including JuLionfish, Sea Life by Starlight and our black-tie annual Gala. Each event unites a community committed to the present and future of the Aquarium. Funds raised at all three events contribute to our mission, directly making a positive impact on animal care, education programming, conservation efforts and much more. Sponsor an event to amplify your brand to engaged Aquarium donors and our closest circle of supporters.

If you are looking for a more permanent spot for your company at the Aquarium, sponsor an entire exhibit! Your business name will be seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors annually as a corporation on the forefront of conservation and education. From the mountains to the sea, indoor to outdoor, fish to mammals, we can pair your brand with an exhibit that aligns with your corporate identity. We also offer named sponsorship opportunities throughout our holiday light spectacular, Aquarium Aglow.
