Mark your calendar for our next Bands in the Sand, Saturday, June 10, 2023.
With drinks in hand and sand between their toes, 1,600 Bay savers rocked out on June 11, 2022, as Bands in the Sand returned to the beach. Along with the music, cheers from the crowd echoed out across the water. There was reason to celebrate—for the first time, we raised over $500,000 towards saving the Chesapeake Bay! Thank you to all the sponsors, guests, volunteers, and vendors who made this event such a success. See our photo gallery.
The record-breaking night showed why Bands in the Sand has become such a beloved annual tradition. With live music, refreshing drinks, local cuisine, and a waterfront view, it was the perfect way for some of the Bay’s biggest fans to come together to celebrate. The money raised through the festivities help support the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and our efforts to achieve clean water and a healthy environment for everyone living in the Bay’s watershed. Bands in the Sand helps fuel all of CBF’s work, including efforts over the next year, such as:
- educating 30,000 students and teachers across the watershed;
- adding millions of oysters to the Bay as we work toward of goal of 10 billion new oysters by 2025;
- planting hundreds of thousands of trees in Pennsylvania as we move closer to 10 million trees by 2025;
- inspiring tens of thousands of advocates to take action for clean water in their communities.
