2018 Shells & Bells Sponsorship Opportunities

December is a big month for Chesapeake Baysavers starting with hosting our Second Annual Shells & Bells, a Party on the Creek. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 8th at the historic Charles Carroll House & Gardens and will feature the very best viewing location for the Eastport Parade of Lights. Guests will enjoy a locally sourced tasting menu, farm raised oyster shucking stations, wine, champagne, and an open bar. The Bachelor Boys will return to get the party floor dancing and everyone will have an opportunity to win amazing auction items.

We are asking that you join us this year as a sponsor of the event. Your support helps drive the environmental work of our outstanding organization and enables us to continue our legislative initiatives as we close out our 10th year!

*Special Sponsor VIPs will enjoy an extra hour of festivities with specialty tastings, passed hors-d’oeuvres,

custom cocktail menu, and will receive their own personalized etched cocktail glass! Entry will be 5:00 PM
