Proceeds Benefit Mystic Aquarium


Mystic, Conn. (November 20, 2017): Ocean Blue Catering, sister company of Mystic Aquarium, is proud to offer affordable holiday party options for local small businesses-all with the spirit of giving. Formal holiday parties may not be cost-effective for small businesses and organizations but the celebration of the season is no less important. With day and night time options, small organizations can celebrate the festivities of the season with decadent food and ambiance with the Big/Little Holiday Luncheon and the Holiday FantaSEA.  A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold from both events will benefit Mystic Aquarium’s Mission Programs of conservation, education and research. 

The Big/Little Holiday Luncheon, set for Friday, December 8 from 1:00pm–4:00pm at the Mystic Yachting Center, allows smaller companies to celebrate the holiday season, together.  Small offices and organizations enjoy the holiday party atmosphere simply by purchasing individual seats.  Along with the gorgeous view of the Mystic River, lunch at the Big/Little will be catered by Ocean Blue Catering.  Tickets are available for $29.95 at MysticAquarium.org. Advanced registration required with ticket sales end 48 hours prior to event date. 

For those with a taste of the nightlife this holiday season, there is Ocean Blue Catering’s Holiday FantaSEA. This annual event is scheduled for Friday, December 15 from 6:30pm- 10:30pm at Mystic Aquarium.  Like the Big/Little, this event is also perfect for smaller companies.  A gourmet holiday buffet will be served in the festive ambiance of the Aquarium’s Main Gallery among spirited holiday décor and colorful fish, sharks and more.  A full cash bar, music by a professional DJ and dancing keeps the good cheer going throughout the evening. 

Tickets for the Holiday FantaSea are priced at $45.99 per person and must be purchased in advance by visiting MysticAquarium.org or calling reservations at 860.572.5955 ext. 520. Full tables are also available. Guests must be at least 21 years of age.
