EAT Oceanwise and attend the best party in the city!

Dine at Ocean Wise restaurants for a chance to win two tickets to Vancouver Aquarium’s signature fundraising gala!

From May 7 to 25, dine at a participating Ocean Wise restaurant and enter to win two tickets to Vancouver Aquarium’s signature fundraising gala – Night at the Aquarium! Winners will arrive in style in a chauffeured Mercedes-Benz that picks you up and takes you home!

Starting now until May 25, BC residents who dine at participating Ocean Wise restaurants including Blue Water Café, C restaurant, Cin Cin, Le Gavroche, O’Doul’s Restaurant & Bar, Nu, Raincity Grill, and West, are eligible to enter the contest for a chance to win two tickets to Night at the Aquarium. The winners will be chauffeured to and from the gala on June 11 by Mercedes-Benz.

Executive Chef Robert Clark from C Restaurant is one of the keen Ocean Wise participants for the contest. Clark has trained with Canada’s top chefs such as Jamie Kennedy, Michael Bonaccini and Mark Thuet. Clark now heads the culinary operations for C Restaurant, Raincity Grill and NU Restaurant & Lounge. Clark’s belief in food is pure and simple: “As chefs, our job is not only about serving great tasting food, but encouraging our staff and our guests to learn how to get sustainably produced food to the table.”  Only quality, sustainable products from earth and sea are used as the building blocks of his cuisine. 

On June 11, the following Ocean Wise restaurants will be at Night at the Aquarium to serve guests their amazing fare: Bishop’s, Blue Water Café, C5 (Toronto), C restaurant, Cabana Bar and Grille, COAST, Hapa Izakaya, Le Gavroche, O’Doul’s Restaurant & Bar, Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co., Vancouver Aquarium Catering & Events, and Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts.

Night at the Aquarium is known as “the best party in the city.” The evening launches with a champagne entrance and features spectacular food from celebrity chefs representing 13 of Vancouver’s Ocean Wise restaurants, complimentary BC wines and great music. Live and silent auctions offer amazing packages and exclusive experiences for the discerning bidder.

Tickets to Night at the Aquarium are valued at $250 (with a partial tax receipt) and 100% of event revenues go to support the Vancouver Aquarium’s conservation, research and education programs.
