4th Annual Founder’s Party

Thursday, February 8th

Tickets on sale now!
Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will host the 4th Annual Founder’s Party on Thursday evening February 8th. This fun, “edutainment” event takes place at Jelinek Creative Spaces at 220 West Bay Street at the west end of Savannah’s historic district. Thrive Catering will provide incredibly delicious fresh locally sourced heavy hors d’oeuvres. Savannah Distributors will host two bars serving a selection of fine wine and beer. Short films of Gray’s Reef’s research will be shown and a few short-winded speakers will update you on all the wonderful work being accomplished offshore on Gray’s Reef. You will enjoy an actual replica of a newborn North Atlantic right whale calf and large stylized jellies hanging from the ceilings. Your Founder’s gift will help you investigate and explore tables of reef and ocean artifacts. This entertaining and educational evening benefits Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
