SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord Aquarium transports you into the amazing underwater world. Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. To get any closer you’d have to get wet!
Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation
Merlin Entertainments, plc and SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord support the charity efforts of Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation which puts the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children. To find out more about Merlin’s Magic Wand, the eligibility criteria and how you can apply, please visit merlinsmagicwand.org/usa.
Locally, we've proudly worked with the following:
- The Sandbox
- Thompson Child & Family Focus
- Alexander Youth Foundation
- Make-A-Wish of Central & Western North Carolina
- Kids Wish Network
- Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte
- Levine Children's Hospital
- Ace & TJ's Grin Kids
- Hemby Children's Hospital
- Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital
In addition to providing over 1,000 tickets for these children to have a magical day with their families, we've also held toy drives and taken mascots to visit our partners who have children unable to visit the aquarium.
Please note that Merlin’s Magic Wand works directly with children, families and organizations that will benefit from a day out and is unfortunately unable to provide tickets to assist with fundraising through raffles and auctions.
Merlin's Magic Wand Foundation is a Public Charity and a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
