Our annual calendar publication began production in 2013. Calendar orders and distribution have steadily increased every year since.
During our calendar pre-order period, all net proceeds are donated to a selected conservation-related charity. In recent years, this organization has been the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.
Hundreds of calendars are distributed to aquatic retailers throughout Central Florida for distribution to their customers.
Calendar sales benefit a variety of organizations and individuals, including our selected local charity, each of our featured artists, the Downtown Arts District of Orlando, CityArts Factory, our calendar sponsors, and helps fund future Central Florida Aquarium Society events like Immersed: http://immersedshow.com
