Our Annual Benefit Gala

We welcome individual and corporate sponsorships and auction donations. To purchase tickets or support our event, please contact Signe Baumann.  

Join our Honorary Host, Senator Lisa Murkowski, at our premier fundraiser of the year, Copper River Nouveau. It’s a celebration of regional resilience, science, education, community, and wild salmon. We honor the effort it takes from the Science Center and our partners near and far to maintain community resilience among healthy ecosystems.

Our guest chef this year is Shana Whitlock of Anchorage's Chicken Shack. This will be her second time preparing our gourmet dinner, featuring wild Copper River salmon.

Due to two memorial services happening in Cordova on June 10, we will not be hosting the Fisheries Achievement Award reception this year. In lieu of the event, we will host an open house for anyone who wishes to visit our new facility and see the updates we've made over the past year. This event is open to the public. Light refreshments provided.
