During this time of challenge and uncertainty related to the coronavirus (Covid-19) we want to assure aquatic organizations, our partners and supporters that Drennen’s Dreams Foundation remains open. We recognize that travel and meeting in person for training and education presentations is limited for the time being. We have mobilized our resources and can offer live, online training for lifeguards and aquatic managers. Pools, waterfronts and waterparks will open at some point and staff need to be ready. If you have a Drennen’s Dreams presentation scheduled and would like to explore online options please contact us:

Have you always wanted to be a Shark on ‘Shark Tank’? This is your opportunity. CLICK HERE for information about being a ‘Tank’ SHARK and support Drennen’s Dreams Foundation’s national drowning prevention and water safety efforts. SHARKS will attend the presentation event. If you can’t make the event but still want to participate, “proxy sharks” can make a donation on your behalf. At the conclusion of the presentations, SHARKS will make their donation(s) to a nonprofit of their choice. SHARKS need to be prepared to write a check at the event to the chosen nonprofit(s) or commit to sending a check within 30 days to the chosen nonprofit(s).
SHARKS will receive:
1) Acknowledgment at beginning and end of event
2) Company logo recognition prominently featured on website event page, printed materials, e-marketing, media releases and in lobby during registration and on screens during program

How will the event work and what will SHARKS do? Each nonprofit will have time allocated to make a quick presentation. A select panel will ask clarifying questions. All Sharks will have an opportunity to provide presenters feedback via a written evaluation form.
Following the event there will be an awards and cocktail reception. Sharks and guests will have time to meet while the event organizers tabulate the shark’s contributions. The results will be announced at the reception. View our video invitation below. Questions? Contact us at: [email protected]
