Our 2017 Taste of the Chesapeake Celebration & Silent Auction will take place September 14, 2017 from 6:00 to 9:30 pm at the Rooftop Conference Center in the Belcher Pavilion of the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD.

At our Taste of the Chesapeake, the Alliance recognizes our environmental leadership award winners and showcases our programs and our progress toward Bay restoration. The Taste also helps raise critical funds to support our vital mission to restore and protect the Chesapeake and increase the impact of our work across the Chesapeake watershed.

Join us at the Taste for an evening of unique Chesapeake-inspired food and drink, live music, raffles, and a silent auction! Items from last year’s silent auction included a weeklong Vermont vacation, Chesapeake waterway trips, sports event tickets, themed baskets, gift certificates, and much more!
