Party with us Saturday after the Scuba Show!
This year’s party will be held in Seaview Rotunda and fire pit areas of the Hyatt Regency Long Beach, adjacent to the convention center. On top of the usual merriment, we’re celebrating 30 years of the Scuba Show! Revel with fellow show attendees and exhibitors while raising money for a good cause. A raffle and silent auction give you a chance to walk away with thousands of dollars worth of incredible prizes – from gear to exotic trips to limited edition artwork.
The theme of this year’s party, “Destination: Hope,” carries a dual meaning.
It’s a compliment to the mission of this year’s beneficiary, Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
And it’s representative of the journey divers take each time they enter the water. The anticipation of what we will experience in the natural world allows us to dive each time expecting our own renewal.
In life and in diving, the destination is made miraculous by the hope that accompanies each journey. Our fundraiser is a way to allow us to gift hope to families who value it most.
Where: Hyatt Regency Long Beach
When: Saturday, May 6, 6pm – 10pm
Admission is free! Food is provided and there will be a cash bar.
The first 100 guests in the door will receive a free raffle ticket.
And don’t miss the presentation of the California Scuba Service Award!
Check back soon for updates, prizes and more!
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles.
