(October 01, 2020) --

The inaugural Cocktails with the Critters Virtual Auction was a huge success. With more than 80 items and 300 Bidders, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation raised an impressive $25,000. 

The Foundation thanks the sponsors for their generous donations and all of the businesses and individuals that donated our wonderful prizes. 

The money will be used to support scholarships and campus needs at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. Mark your calendar for May 6, 2021 for next year’s Cocktails with the Critters.
