More than 200 guests can enjoy cocktail hour and silent auction among the aquariums and art gallery, sunset on the bridge over Henderson Creek, and a wild live auction on the center's back lawn. This year, the Batfish Bash will feature an amazing dining experience with Service By Jordan. Upbeat and catchy music from the Girl Meets Boy band will have you grooving on the outdoor dance floor. Proceeds from the wild live auction will help support research and education for future scientists. Event sponsors include Minto, Arthrex, First Florida Integrity Bank, and many other members of the community. $195/per ticket

The Batfish Bash for the Bay is the signature annual fundraiser for the Friends of Rookery Bay. Proceeds from the live and silent auctions directly support the research, stewardship, and education efforts undertaken by the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
