Thanks to an outpouring of community support, Tennessee Aquarium President and CEO Keith Sanford was able to present a $5,000 check to staff of the Charles H. Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center.

Screenings of the 75th anniversary of “D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944” at the Aquarium’s IMAX Theater were popular enough with local audiences that two additional showings were added to the theater’s lineup.

A portion of the proceeds will help support the ongoing construction of exhibits underway at the Heritage Center.

About 3,500 people have been awarded the nation’s highest military award, including 32 Tennesseans.

The Heritage Center opens next to the Tennessee Aquarium in the spring of 2020. Learn more.
