On April 19, 2016, Oceana hosted its annual New York City Benefit at the iconic Four Seasons Restaurant. The event celebrated Oceana’s first fifteen years and its victories to help save the oceans and feed the world. Dr. Kristian Parker (one of Oceana’s founders) and Oak Foundation were honored for their significant contributions to Oceana and leadership in marine conservation. Oceana board member Susan and David Rockefeller and Violaine and John Bernbach co-chaired the New York City Benefit.
The evening featured cocktails, dinner and a performance by actor and Master of Ceremonies, Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
