Please join us for a fun-filled evening on the water's edge with great friends, amazing 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 and fellow co-chairs Jonathan and Marnie Kagan, Lisa Kahan, Craig Friedrich, Ramsey Poston, Tracey Shushan, and Cullen Murray, have helped organize the eleventh 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 ten years, the event has raised more than $1.3 million 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.
