$1 From Every Ticket Donated To Chesapeake Bay Trust

Rams Head Promotions, organizers of the Silopanna Music Festival, today announced a partnership with the Annapolis-based Chesapeake Bay Trust, a nonprofit, grant-making organization that funds projects and programs to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers. Silopanna Fest, which will take place August 27 at the Anne Arundel Fairgrounds, is a one day music festival with three stages and 20 bands for all ages, including Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Matt & Kim, Fitz and the Tantrums and Harper Blynn, among many others.

During the week of August 8-14, Rams Head will donate one dollar from every ticket sold for the festival to the Chesapeake Bay Trust. To show their appreciation, all tickets purchased during this week will be entered into a drawing to win two free tickets to an upcoming performance at Rams Head Live, Rams Head On Stage or Pier Six Pavilion.

“We are incredibly excited to bring Silopanna’s line-up to the Anne Arundel Fairgrounds and to host an event that we feel not only entertains the community, but benefits it as well,” said Erin Brunst McNaboe, vice president of Rams Head Group. “By partnering with the Chesapeake Bay Trust, we are able to give back to a cause that is near and dear to every Marylander: bringing back our treasured Chesapeake Bay.”

Since 1985, the Chesapeake Bay Trust has awarded more than $40 million in grants that support Chesapeake Bay restoration, public outreach and K-12 education projects. Each year the Trust funds about $4 million in grants in every county in Maryland and Baltimore City. For the eighth consecutive year, the Trust has received a “Four-Star Rating” from Charity Navigator, placing the organization in the top 1 percent of charities nationwide.

“At the Trust, we believe that getting people involved at the local level is a crucial element to improving the health of the Chesapeake Bay and our rivers,” said Allen Hance, executive director of the Chesapeake Bay Trust. “We are honored to partner with Rams Head to raise funds to help the Bay and increase awareness about what we can all do to become better stewards of the environment.”

In addition to the exceptional performances, the Silopanna Music Festival will also feature 30 unique vendors, misting tents, face painting, food and beverages, free parking, and a “green” eco-friendly focus. Games will also be available, including a Dunking Booth, with all proceeds going to benefit the Chesapeake Bay Trust and its grant programs.
