Last year was a huge success with over 600 people in attendance all gathering together to support a great cause – Save the Bay. Attendees were treated to great live music with some of Annapolis’ best local bands including Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) President William C. Baker shared, “What a party! Here’s something to look forward to at the end of summer. And the time couldn’t be better for helping the Bay. CBF is rallying everyone for the biggest fight for clean water this nation has ever seen.”
