Party with a Purpose

Does your child have a passion for aquatic life and conservation? Make an impact and throw a Party with a Purpose! In lieu of gifts, guests make a donation in the birthday child’s name to Mississippi Aquarium. To celebrate your child’s special day, as well as being a conservation hero, he or she will receive a Mississippi Aquarium Animal Adoption Package. All donations go directly to the care of the animals at the Aquarium.
