Sunset on the Lagoon took place Friday, May 23 at the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center. Attendees enjoyed a casual evening among friends while overlooking Florida Oceanographic’s tranquil 750,000-gallon Game Fish Lagoon. They listened to a live acoustic performance by Ricky Shockley while drinking ice cold beer, sipping wine, and savoring delectable hors d' oeuvres. They also had a chance to win great prizes.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to visit the Coastal Center after hours, spend time with friends, and celebrate the great outdoors with a beautiful sunset,” said Mark Perry, executive director of Florida Oceanographic Society.
Proceeds from Sunset on the Lagoon support Florida Oceanographic Society's research, education, restoration, and advocacy initiatives to preserve and protect our coastal ecosystems.
