North Carolina Aquarium Society hosting fundraiser for shark conservation

ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. (WITN) – The North Carolina Aquarium Society will be fundraising for shark conservation and research right here in the east Wednesday evening.

Tonight the society will host its “Suds for Sharks” fundraiser at Crystal Coast Brewing Company from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The fundraiser will be a free and family-friendly event that aims to bring awareness to the importance of sharks.

The event will feature a silent auction with shark-themed items donated by local artists. All donations will go to the nonprofit aquarium society to support the N.C. Aquarium Conservation Action Committee’s shark conservation projects for shark field research, outreach, and conservation.

The brewery will have an exclusive sand tiger shark-themed beer available and $1-dollar from every shark-themed beer sold will go toward the conservation projects.
