Join CBF and co-chairs Wendy and Larry Culp as we celebrate the Chesapeake Bay and its beloved oyster. DC on the Half Shell will feature gourmet Bay cuisine, cocktails, live entertainment, and—you guessed it—oysters galore!

CBF is proud to honor Washington College and Virginia Wesleyan Univeristy for their vision and dedication to educating the next generation of Bay leaders.

Sponsorship opportunities are currently available. Please contact Taryn at tdwan@cbf.org or call 443-482-2111 for more information.
