Oystr RecoveryThe Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP) has announced that tickets are on sale for its annual fundraiser, the Mermaid’s Kiss Oyster Fest.  The event will be held on Thursday, October 2 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Admission is $90 for an individual ticket and $150 per pair. Tickets can be purchased at www.mermaidskiss.org. Proceeds support the Oyster Recovery Partnership in restoring oyster reefs in the Chesapeake Bay.

Mermaid’s Kiss showcases regional cuisine, including Chesapeake Bay oysters and specialty dishes prepared by popular local restaurants. The event also features after-hours access to the Aquarium, live music, drinks and waterfront views.  Participating restaurants and chefs will be announced in September.

The Oyster Recovery Partnership is celebrating its 20th year of large-scale oyster restoration in the Chesapeake Bay. As a result of this work, more than 5 billion oysters have been planted on 1,700 acres of oyster reefs and 30,000 bushels of shell have been recycled to provide new homes for Bay oysters.

For event information and tickets visit www.mermaidskiss.org or call Sarah Walker at the Oyster Recovery Partnership, 410-990-4970. ORP is still accepting sponsors for the 2014 Mermaid’s Kiss.
