Reef Savvy Ponies Up with Generous Donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital


Reef Savvy St. Jude Walk

Last year, Reef Savvy kicked off what looks to now be an annual tradition with their extremely generous raffle for the St. Jude “Give Thanks. Walk.” event. In that raffle, they were attempting to raise $10,000 by giving away a 50-gallon aquarium setup, and a whole bunch of other companies also dug deep to come up with a ton of other goodies to help get Reef Savvy to their goal. The raffle was a success, as that goal was not only reached, but surpassed in a big way. For 2014, Reef Savvy is back and their contribution this year looks to double what they were able to accomplish last year, with the goal this time being a whopping $20,000.

To help reach this goal, Reef Savvy has also made the raffle item larger, opting for a 100-gallon Limited Edition RedBottom Aquarium. The tank has the following dream list of features:

  • Reef Savvy™ 100G Limited Edition RedBottom Aquarium
  • 48″L x 24″W x 20″H
  • 1/2″ (15mm) glass with a high polish and beveled edges
  • 4 sides Diamant™, ultra clear low iron glass

  • Smoked Glass & Acrylic Hybrid Overflow (includes bulkheads and a black PVC overflow kit with Loc-Lines)
