Julie Packard and Meg Whitman with Bill Gates at the Packard Award Dinner

David Packard Award Dinner Honoring Bill Gates

IN OCTOBER, we honored visionary Microsoft co-founder and philanthropic innovator Bill Gates with the third David Packard Award at an event attended by some of Silicon Valley's most iconic technology company leaders, along with global ocean conservationists and philanthropists.

"Bill has done so much to improve the human condition by harnessing technology to advance social good, and by launching bold philanthropic initiatives to make lives better around the world and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life," said Executive Director Julie Packard.

The highlight of the evening was an engaging fireside chat with Bill and dinner chair Meg Whitman. They covered topics from the role technology can play in environmental conservation, to new approaches philanthropy can bring to pressing global challenges and the importance of optimism.

We're deeply grateful for the support of the many donors who came together to honor Bill, and who are helping us take bold action to achieve our vision for a vibrant blue planet.

DONOR PROFILE


Feather duster worm

In memory of Wendy Hayward

WITH GREAT SADNESS, we acknowledge the passing of Wendy Hayward, daughter of the late Homer (founding trustee) and Nancy Hayward. Since our very beginning, the Hayward Family's generosity has been instrumental in advancing the Aquarium's work on behalf of the ocean. Wendy was a passionate supporter of education and the environment, and we are especially grateful for her generous and unwavering support of our education and conservation initiatives over many years. We extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

THANK YOU


Juli Plant Grainger

Juli Plant Grainger — A Lifetime of Caring

Born in Chicago, Juli graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1948. She was married for 64 years to college sweetheart David W. Grainger and was an important partner with David in his career as chairman of the industrial supply company W.W.

Grainger, a family business founded in 1927. She was an active community volunteer and philanthropist, serving as trustee of many organizations including the Field Museum, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Colonial Williamsburg among others. Juli and David visited the Monterey area often and were longtime supporters of the Aquarium.
