MEMORIAL DAY CAMPAIGN
Georgia Aquarium proudly supports the armed forces and continually recognizes their extraordinary sacrifices through our Military Salute programming. Help us continue this programming and honor your loved one who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the armed forces by participating in our Memorial Day Recognition Wall Campaign.
By participating in Georgia Aquarium's Memorial Day Recognition Wall Campaign, your loved one's name will appear on the Stone Wall in Georgia Aquarium's Atrium twice per hour from May 26 to May 31, 2017. For every $25.00 you donate, you may recognize and remember one hero in your life who sacrificed theirs while serving in the armed forces. Please include the name, branch of service, and rank of the military person you are recognizing, along with their year of birth and passing, in the message box. All donations must be submitted by 5:00 pm on May 19 for placement on the Recognition Wall.
All Memorial Day Recognition Wall Campaign proceeds benefit Georgia Aquarium's Military Salute Program including our Veterans Immersion Program and Gold Star Initiatives. Information on these programs is listed below along with information on additional programs that provide positive experiences for military personnel as part of Georgia Aquarium Military Salute.
