Bands in the Sand
Plan to join us next year for a fun-filled evening on the water's edge with friends, great live music, cool drinks, and mouth-watering grilled food at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's annual Bands in the Sand event.
"There's nothing greater than a party with a purpose and Bands in the Sand is that and more," explains Dick Franyo, a "Committed to the Bay" Committee Co-Chair. Franyo, along with the other co-chairs, Jim Gibbons, Jonathan and Marnie Kagan, Lisa Kahan, David and Elicia Leudemann, and Cullen Murray, have help organize the eighth annual Bands in the Sand event, which will be held at CBF's Philip Merrill Environmental Center.
Bands in the Sand is the brainchild of Franyo, a CBF Trustee and owner of the Boatyard Bar & Grill in Eastport, Maryland. Over the last seven years, the event has raised more than $775,000 to support CBF's efforts to defend and protect the Bay, including award-winning educational programs, on-the-ground restoration activities throughout the watershed, and advocacy initiatives at both the federal and state level.
Each year, the party gets better. Watch for more info in the spring.
