The Bay’s biggest night is back, and you’re invited! Join us to celebrate the Chesapeake Bay and present the Conservationist of the Year award to recently retired CBF President and CEO Will Baker at our biennial gala! Not only will we raise a glass to Will’s remarkable career, but we will welcome Hilary Harp Falk, CBF’s President and CEO.

This unique event features local Chesapeake Bay oyster growers and their oysters. Enjoy live music, gourmet cuisine, cocktails, and the company of the region's top philanthropists, legislative decision makers, and corporate and community leaders.

Together we will raise vital funds for CBF's education and restoration efforts. With your support, we will put nearly three million oysters on sanctuary reefs.
