About the Event
This fundraising event is vital to our survival through this trying time. Every dollar raised will benefit CMA’s core mission. It is our hope that you will partner with CMA in support of this fundraiser, your participation is greatly appreciated and will enable us to continue our important work.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) is preparing for our 9th annual fundraising event, Winter on the Beach. What can only be described as a year like no other – our event will share this same sentiment. Since the world as we know it has changed and over the past 11 months, these changes have impacted the way charitable organizations all over the world operate their event.
We are pleased to say we will be continuing the tradition of Winter on the Beach and celebrate CMA by hosting our first ever Virtual Auction and Program. For the first time ever we are able to share our largest fundraiser virtually to everyone!
From exotic vacations, rare art pieces, gift certificates to restaurants, boutiques, and hotels, VIP attractions and one-of-a-kind CMA experiences – our silent and live auctions are known to bring some unique and exciting items up for bid. Registration and auction bidding for our Virtual Auction begins on February 11 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Live Auction will continue during our Virtual Program Live on February 18 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
