On Wednesday, July 18, 2018, corporate partner friends and families celebrated at the New England Aquarium’s Into the Blue event.

This annual corporate appreciation evening had something for everyone—from IMAX films to learning opportunities to a tasty strolling dinner. 

The evening began with remarks from Donna Hazard, New England Aquarium Chair of the Board of Trustees and Interim President and CEO, who thanked guests for their vital support of the Aquarium’s mission and programming. Following introductions, they enjoyed the heartwarming IMAX movie Pandas 3D, which follows the journey of a captive-born panda cub into her new life in China’s misty mountain wilds.

We then opened the Aquarium’s exhibits where our visitors enjoyed a strolling dinner—complete with a mac and cheese bar!—while taking in a private view of the Giant Ocean Tank and visited The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank to touch our friendly sharks and rays. Our corporate partners, along with their friends and families, also got to watch frisky and flexible northern fur seals fly through the water and interact with their trainers on the decks of the New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center.

Our roving photographers snapped some fantastic photos of the fun.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at this annual corporate appreciation event, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
