The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Bands in the Sand. Our top priority is the health and safety of our volunteers, supporters, and staff. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this important fundraiser due to the COVID-19 crisis, but we are determined to continue to serve our community, partners, and mission. As a CBF supporter, your generosity will enable us to maintain progress during this challenging and unprecedented time. We need your help.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in the amount of this year’s Bands in the Sand ticket. The funding raised by Bands in the Sand is crucial to our ability to save the Bay. Every dollar raised goes directly to our local restoration and education efforts. Your support is more important than ever.
