What a Night! Thanks to You, the Party for Adventuress was a Smashing Success

On Saturday, October 3rd, members of Sound Experience’s dedicated and growing community of supporters came together to raise a glass—and their bid cards—to support Adventuress and her youth environmental mission.

Thank you to the more than 230 partygoers who attended the festive Party for Adventuress at the Seattle Aquarium—and thank you to all who donated silent and live auction items resulting in $56,428 raised. Just as incredible and humbling was the sight of our party guests enthusiastically raising their bid cards during the “paddle raise” portion of the evening, donating over $25,000 in funds for our ship and mission. Huzzah to all of you!

Tremendous thanks to the generous sponsorship of the businesses and individuals listed below. Because of you, EVERY dollar that was raised at the gala will go directly towards supporting the delivery of our shipboard programs.

Finally, a huge “shout out” to those who gave their financial support even though they could not be there. You gave a wonderful $3,300. If others would like to join these special donors who couldn’t attend the party but want to make a gift, you are welcome to do so by clicking here.

All of us are grateful to you—our generous donors—for this and all the ways you support Adventuress and her powerful mission here in Puget Sound. You are ensuring that Adventuress remains not for one, but for all.

Microplastics Initiative

Adventuress is partnering with Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and the Center for Urban Waters to expand our opportunities for citizen science, as well as to educate people who come aboard about the emerging issue of Microplastics in Puget Sound. Throughought the sailing season, scoopers from Ben and Jerry's volunteer their time during select public sails to scoop ice cream and help our shipboard educators and participants aboard take microplastics samples. We are also taking samples during overnight programs, getting students involved with very relevant citizen science opportunities. We send the samples to researchers at the Center for Urban Waters to be processed.

The following Sound Experience Microplastics Map shows the samples that have been processed to date, and is updated as more samples are inputed! We are grateful to all the partnerships coming together so we can be part of this exciting new research!
