Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

The sixth an­nual Guy Har­vey Ocean Foun­da­tion fundraiser will take place from 6 to 10 p.m., Nov. 2, at the In­ter­na­tional Game Fish As­so­ci­a­tion Fish­ing Hall of Fame and Mu­seum, 30 Gulf Stream Way, Da­nia Beach. The ban­quet will raise funds nec­es­sary to carry out sci­en­tific re­search and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams for sus­tain­able ma­rine en­vi­ron­ments.

Dr. Har­vey, who is rec­og­nized for his work as a ma­rine wildlife artist, sci­en­tist and con­ser­va­tion­ist, will host the event. The fundraiser fea­tures live mu­sic, din­ner, drinks, silent and live auc­tions, orig­i­nal Guy Har­vey art­work, and op­por­tu­ni­ties to win fish­ing trips and re­lax­ing va­ca­tions to re­sort des­ti­na­tions.

There will be a screen­ing of a year-in-re­view film cov­er­ing Dr. Har­vey’s ca­reer and the foun­da­tion’s ac­com­plish­ments. At­ten­dees will also learn about plans for 2014. In­di­vid­ual tick­ets are $300; ta­bles of 10 are $2,500.

The Guy Har­vey Ocean Foun­da­tion is a leader in in­ter­na­tional ef­forts to pro­tect oceans and ma­rine en­vi­ron­ments.

Its mis­sion is to help en­sure that fu­ture gen­er­a­tions will en­joy and ben­e­fit from a nat­u­rally bal­anced ocean ecosys­tem, where fish and other ma­rine wildlife flour­ish.

The In­ter­na­tional Game Fish As­so­ci­a­tion Fish­ing Hall of Fame is lo­cated next to Bass Pro Shops and Out­door World.
