"Love Your Lagoon" Dinner
The third time was a charm for the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Foundation's (HBOIF) annual "Love Your Lagoon" dinner. This year, organizers doubled sponsorships and boosted ticket sales by 35 percent, raising $81,000 in critical funding to benefit FAU Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute's (HBOI) Indian River Lagoon Observatory research and outreach efforts. This year's proceeds were a 53 percent increase over last year's numbers.
A record 300+ people attended the dinner that celebrated lagoon research and this year's guest of honor, Alma Lee Loy, selected by the HBOIF Board of Directors for her long-standing role in local leadership and commitment to the environment and the Indian River Lagoon. Proceeds from the dinner help to underwrite events including the recent Indian River Lagoon Symposium, Public Meeting on Lagoon Health and the "Our Global Estuary" national workshop regarding estuarine observatories held at HBOI.
