Parrot Heads from the mid-Atlantic region, some from as far away as Florida, along with Annapolis and surrounding community residents will enjoy drinks and a grilled buffet dinner provided by the Boatyard Bar and Grill under the stars on the newly renovated Annapolis Maritime Museum campus. “This is a magical waterfront setting for this event,” said Museum Director Jeff Holland. “Not only is this great music, but it’s for a great cause. Over the past four years, the Boatyard Bar and Grill and other sponsors have raised more than $150,000 to rebuild the historic McNasby Oyster Company building and support the education programs that connect our kids with the Chesapeake Bay.”
Tickets priced at $60 per person go on sale Monday, July 14, and can be purchased online at www.amaritime.org; at the Boatyard Bar and Grill on the corner of Severn Avenue and Fourth Street in Eastport; and the Museum office. Current sponsors include BB&T, Hargrove, Inc., Jaguar/Land Rover Annapolis, Brian Bays Insurance, Frank Gumpert Printing Chesapeake Bay Magazine, What’s Up Annapolis and Eastern Shore, Comcast, SpinSheet, PropTalk and WRNR Radio. Corporate sponsorships are available by calling the Museum at 410-295-0104. A special Committed Committee Sponsor Package is also available which includes a VIP Pre-Party to meet and greet the band. To charge by phone with a major credit card, call the Museum.
