Saturday, October 20, 2012 8p.m. to Midnight
The Commotion in
the Ocean annual fund raising event will be held October 20, from 8 p.m. –
midnight. Last spring, the event was officially recognized as Best Charity Gala
by the Virginia Living Magazine.
This year, Commotion in the Ocean will
feature the band Carbon Jam. Guests can dance in a nightclub atmosphere,
compete in “throwback” games like arcade and pinball, shop the silent auction
mall of travel packages and exquisite merchandise, partake of abundant food and
beverages, and enjoy the Aquarium exhibits in a festive atmosphere.
The event is organized by the Aquarium
Connection, a group of Hampton Roads’ young professionals who raise money for
the Virginia Aquarium Foundation. This year’s Commotion in the Ocean
proceeds will help the Virginia Aquarium invest in
technology upgrades for educational programming as well as the research
& conservation division.
Commotion in the
Ocean tickets cost $75 per person,
and includes admission, food, beer and wine. Valet parking is provided. Advanced tickets are no longer available but tickets will be available at the door.
