Bands in the Sand

BITS2017 PropTalkFullSponsorAdBands in the Sand, BITS, benefit for Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Boatyard philanthropy

Next Date:  June 9, 2018

2018 will be our 13th Annual Bands In The Sand party at and to benefit the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.   Los Lobos was the musical headliner in 2017, joined by Mad Planet and Misspent Youth.

The Boatyard owner, Dick Franyo, a Trustee of CBF, saw the opportunity for the best beach party in the area while out at another event up on the porch at CBF almost a decade ago.  He said to himself “this is nice but CBF needs to have its largest fundraiser right on the beach by the Bay overlooking Thomas Point Lighthouse.”  Since he had already founded and produced the Annual Boatyard Spring Fishing Tournament and Annual Annapolis Maritime Museum Boatyard Beach Bash, he knew a lot about throwing outdoor “life-style events”.  It meant generators and wires for power under the sand, large professional stage, sound system, lighting and setting up a full kitchen right on the sand.  Dick says “the CBF team and my Boatyard staff have really stepped up and produced the very best party of the year in the area.”
