Beach Ball 2012 Turns up the Heat!


March 9, 2012


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas— Beach Ball 2012 will be hosted at the Texas State Aquarium on Friday, April 13, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The media is invited to a press conference on Tuesday, March 13, at 10:30 a.m., announcing the entertainment for Beach Ball 2012, plus sponsors, incredible auction items, and more important event details.


Proceeds from Beach Ball will help fund Stingray Lagoon, a hands-on experience where families can feed and interact with a large collection of cownose rays, southern, and Atlantic stingrays. The existing ray pool, Stingray Flats, will be renovated and then filled with small species of sharks, and for those brave enough, opportunities to touch these amazing animals will be part of the program.


We hope to see you Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. in the Texas State Aquarium lobby.
