Join the fun today!
The Oceans Benefit is SDOF's annual gala for community members to join us to reflect on SDOF's accomplishments in the last year, look forward to the next and present the Roger Revelle Award to a deserving recipient, announce the winners of our Ocean Leadership Awards, and celebrate our mission of ocean stewardship!
Each year, SDOF seeks to host this event at a unique location, with attractions and music, a cocktail hour and a sumptuous dinner at a reasonable price. The evening is filled with entertainments of all sorts and is always fun and enjoyable, never "stuffy" or dull!
SDOF's most prestigious honor, the Roger Revelle Award, is awarded annually to a San Diegan in science, academia, industry, military, recreation or philanthropy who demonstrates personal initiative in encouraging stewardship of the world's precious ocean resources. The award is named for the late Dr. Revelle, the fifth director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the driving force in creating the University of California, San Diego, and the first Director of the Center for Population Studies at Harvard.
This year's event will be held at Sea World's new Manta and Dolphin Point Exhibits and will offer sustainable seafood tastings prepared by local celebrity chefs.
