Annual Users' Meeting Banquet

"An Evening at Atlantis Marine World Aquarium and Swimming with the Sharks"
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 (6:30 pm - 10:00 pm)

In keeping with this year's theme on "Climate Change", please join us for a unique dining experience at the Atlantis Marine World Aquarium in Riverhead, NY. The Cocktail Hour will begin around 6:30 p.m., with dinner commencing at 7:30 p.m. 

Shark Dive and Pledge Drive - Join us as two unlucky scalawags are placed inside a cage right in the middle of more than 10 circling sharks and an array of fish that cannot be found together anywhere on Earth except at Atlantis Marine World. You’ll have the opportunity of deciding who will go nose-to-nose with some of the ocean’s top predators inside their 120,000-gallon Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit.

"All proceeds from this pledge drive will be donated to the Nature Conservancy".
