Annual fundraiser for the Skipjack Dee of St. Mary’s
October 13, 2018
~ 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. under the Drum Point Lighthouse, in the boat basin
Gather some friends and join us for the Aww… Shucks Oyster Social, the museum’s annual fundraiser for the skipjack, Dee of St. Mary’s. Indulge in the fattest and saltiest oysters on the half shell, enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, beer and wine, and live music by Gary Rue, Billy Thompson, and Doug Barthalow. Tickets are $75 each and available online. Click here to purchase tickets. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the endowment for the Dee of St. Mary’s.
Since acquiring the Dee in 2013, utilization of the skipjack has increased with educational programs, private charters, and public sails that have enabled many people to experience this floating classroom. The volunteer crew has invested hundreds of hours maintaining this vessel and the endowment will assist with the many challenges they face throughout the year as they care for this iconic wooden workboat.
Beer and wine, compliments of Bozick Distributors, along with heavy hors d’ oeuvres from local restaurants promise an evening of relaxed fun, all in support of the Dee.
Sponsorship opportunities for this year's event are available at various levels and each includes complimentary tickets to the event, along with other unique benefits.
