This annual fundraiser supports the mission of protecting and preserving our ocean and estuary resources. The event features local fine restaurants serving sustainable seafood and other locally-sourced dishes, a silent auction, entertainment, and a breathtaking view of the sun setting over the Guana River. Guests will be treated to locally sourced beers and fine wines sponsored by Bold City Brewery.
