Sponsor levels

The plans are in place, and we need you to help finish the journey to our opening in 2019. Mississippi Aquarium Foundation’s campaign goal is $15 million. These funds will go toward educational and outreach programs, research projects and the creation of our research and conservation endowment.

We invite you to “jump in” with us at our Hancock Whitney Splash Bash! Sponsors receive early and exclusive admittance to the Hancock Whitney VIP Lounge, with upscale cocktail bars, delectable cuisine, comfortable seating, charging stations and more. We also recognize sponsors on printed materials, including the event invitation, web page, and Sponsor and Patron welcome signs at the entrance to the event.

Patron Levels

Patrons will have access to early admittance to the event, with hand-crafted libations, including the official Hancock Whitney “signature cocktail,” served alongside mouthwatering local food selections created just for the event. Patrons will also enjoy comfortable lounge seating and a view of the main stage. All Patrons receive recognition on the event web page and welcome signage.

Sponsor and Patron organizations must provide logos to Mississippi Aquarium no later than August 6, 2018 for logos to appear in the event invitation.

Thank you for your support!
