How far can one night
go to make a difference?

Last year, the Ocean Ball brought 150 entrepreneurs & business leaders together to benefit The Outlaw Ocean Project’s mission to uncover abuses & illegal fishing in the Galapagos & Falkland Islands.

This year the Ocean Ball aims to raise funds for the Canadian Parks and Wildlife Society (CPAWS) and their mission to protect at least half of the ocean in Canada by 2050.
