San Francisco Bay Gala

image description

When The Bay Institute and Aquarium of the Bay joined forces five years ago, a unique partnership was formed to protect, restore and inspire conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed. Our shared mission compels us to be at the forefront of environmental conservation and education. We are a voice for the rivers. We are champions for the Bay. We are leaders in environmental education. And we are continuously growing—affecting change where it is needed most.

Looking back at the 2014 Gala

Thank you for helping to make the 2014 San Francisco Bay Gala our most successful fundraising event yet. Critical funds were raised during the evening to help us continue to host free environmental science-based programs for over 20,000 children annually, protect and care for thousands of animals, and be the voice for conservation and restoration of our Bay, rivers, and coastal waters.

The evening kicked off with a VIP reception to honor and thank Darius and Sarah Anderson for playing a key role in the Aquarium's transformation into a nonprofit five years ago. Following the VIP reception, guests entered the Aquarium, which had been transformed into an elegant wonderland with live music, delicious drinks, and delectable bites from some of San Francisco's finest sustainable seafood restaurants.

We would like to say a special thanks to our generous sponsors and event partners. Without their support this amazing event would not have been possible.

Whether you were able to join us at the San Francisco Bay Gala or not, you can help us continue to fulfill our mission to protect, restore, and inspire conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the sea by making an online donation.

We are very proud of the work we do and we look forward to continuing this critical work for years to come. We couldn't do it without your generous support. For that, we sincerely thank you.

From all of us at The Bay Institute and Aquarium of the Bay
