AWW… SHUCKS OYSTER SOCIAL
Celebrate the Dee of St. Mary’s with an evening of fun on October 29!

Gather some friends and join us for the Aww… Shucks Oyster Social, our annual fundraiser for the Dee of St. Mary’s, on Saturday, October 29. Guests will indulge in the fattest and saltiest oysters on the half shell from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, beer and wine, live music, and a silent auction. Tickets are $75 each and available online at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.

Since acquiring the Dee in 2013, utilization of the skipjack has increased with educational programs, private charters, and public and sunset sails that have enabled many people to experience this floating classroom. Our volunteer crew has invested hundreds of hours maintaining this vessel. This year, the fundraiser supports the purchase of a new mainsail. We are constantly faced with exciting challenges in caring for this wooden workboat, and we need your help.

The event will include live music by Jeff Farias and Gary Rue. A silent auction will feature a private catered sail with delectable appetizers, chilled beer and wine and a personal server aboard the Dee with 25 of the winner’s closest friends and Chesapeake Bay inspired items. Beer and wine, compliments of Bozick Distributors, along with heavy hors d’ oeuvres by our local restaurants promise an evening of fun and friendship, all in support of the Dee.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at all levels and include complimentary tickets to the event, along with other unique benefits. Please contact Vanessa Gill at 410-326-2042 ext. 18 or email gillvl@co.cal.md.us for more information. Please join us in caring for this beautiful piece of Chesapeake Bay history.
