Annual Event Raises Over $110,000 to Support Cleaner, Healthier Watersheds
The Trust’s 20th Annual Treasure the Chesapeake celebration was held on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. More than 400 corporations, businesses, and individuals participated in this year’s event, helping to raise over $110,000 in support of the Trust’s work to engage hundreds of thousands of students, citizens, and volunteers in hands-on projects for cleaner, greener, healthier watersheds throughout the region.
Guests were treated to Nanticoke oysters at the oyster bar provided by the Oyster Recovery Partnership; a special beer tasting provided by Brewery Ommegang, a Cooperstown, NY-based craft brewery known for their clean water initiatives; a silent auction with fantastic finds and exciting getaways donated by dozens of local artists and regional businesses; and a thrilling presentation from America’s Cup winner, world-class sailor, broadcaster, and producer, Gary Jobson.
This year’s event was a huge success and could not have been accomplished without the support of our grantees, sponsors, partners, and friends! We surpassed our fundraising goals and we are thrilled to be able to invest those resources in the work of our grantees.
Thank you to those who were able to join us at the event and to those who supported us from afar and in spirit! We are so grateful your continued support!
