The South Carolina Aquarium will host a Sea Life by Starlight soiree at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The fundraiser includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, music and a live and silent auction to benefit the Concord Street attraction's conservation and education programs.

Among the auction items are a two-night trip for two to Chicago, a dive in the aquarium's Great Ocean Tank, a private dinner prepared by Chef Stephen Ollard of Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar, and a BMW Performance Driving School Experience.

Tickets are $50 for members and $60 for non-members. Special access tickets can also be purchased for $75. They include a 6-7 p.m. cocktail reception, silent auction preview and a front-row view of The Parade of Boats in Charleston Harbor.
