Greater Cleveland Aquarium and the United Black Fund of Greater Cleveland Inc. (UBF) launched their annual Martin Luther King Jr Day friend- and fund-raising partnership 8 years ago. Due to a short-term mid-January stingray touch pool filtration improvement project that could briefly impact Coastal Boardwalk Gallery guest traffic flow in the Aquarium, the 1-day cooperative outreach campaign is being extended to a nearly 2-week timespan to provide ample space and opportunity for guests to learn about and contribute to this important organization.
Admission during Difference-Makers Days January 16 – 27, 2023, will be reduced temporarily to $14.95 for adults and $8.95 for children ages 2-12, and $1 from each ticket sold will be donated directly to UBF. Additionally, guests are invited to make roundup donations or “Text to Give” by sending UBF to 50155.
Signage throughout the Aquarium will share stories of African Americans breaking down barriers in science.
