This year’s party will be held at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach, adjacent to the convention center. On top of the usual merriment, we are celebrating 30 years of the Scuba Show!
Revel with fellow show attendees and exhibitors while raising money for a good cause. A raffle and silent auction give you a chance to walk away with thousands of dollars worth of incredible prizes from the latest gear to exotic trips to limited edition artwork and much more. Meet the 2017 California Scuba Service Award recipients Howard and Michele Hall, mingle with old friends and meet new ones.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles for an ocean related wish experience for a child.
The theme of this year’s party, “Destination: Hope,” carries a dual meaning. It’s a compliment to the mission of Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles, and its representative of the journey divers take each time they enter the water. The anticipation of what we will experience in the natural world allows us to dive each time expecting our own renewal. In life and in diving, the destination is made miraculous by the hope that accompanies each journey.
