After a sell-out crowd of 2,000-plus partygoers helped debut the first Hancock Whitney Splash Bash for Mississippi Aquarium in 2018, the second annual over-age-21 fundraiser party on September 27, 2019, will feature returning top-rated show band “Chinatown,” Coast cuisine by even more of South Mississippi’s most celebrated chefs and restaurants, full bars of favorite premium cocktails, and featured wildlife, some of which will soon call Mississippi Aquarium home.

The theme for the 2019 Hancock Whitney Splash Bash is “The Year of the Croc” to focus on the plight of the endangered American crocodile, which will be one of the aquarium’s spotlight exhibits.

Currently under construction in downtown Gulfport and expected to open in late 2019/early 2020, Mississippi Aquarium—dubbed “Mississippi’s aquarium”— will be an accredited aquarium recognized for creating family entertainment and educationally enriching programming, advancing conservation efforts, and showcasing marine life and marine research.

All Hancock Whitney Splash Bash proceeds support Mississippi Aquarium, a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.
