27th ANNUAL BUGEYE BALL A HUGE SUCCESS

 

It was an evening of enchantment at the 27th annual Bugeye Ball held at the Calvert Marine Museum on Saturday, April 1. More than 380 guests were in attendance, which was the most ever for the Bugeye Ball. The event raised over $60K with all proceeds supporting the restoration of the historic Drum Point Lighthouse.

Eileen Bildman, the Board of Director’s Ball chair, has led the event for the last four years and taken the Bugeye Ball to a new level. Seen as a way to thank our friends while enjoying a wonderful evening for a good cause, the Bugeye Ball has become one of the museum’s highlight annual events. “Without the support of our generous 74 sponsors and the local community this event would not be possible,” said Bildman.

Delicious cuisine was provided by Ken Upton of Ken’s Creative Kitchen, music by Playlist had guests dancing the night away, casino entertainment was provided by Entertainment Avenue, and Top Hap Party Design of Huntingtown, Maryland generously created the ambiance for the evening.

The “Chance to Win” raffle featured two prizes. A weeklong stay for two in Belize at the Beaches and Dreams Resort, including airfare, was won by Chris Holt of BB&T Bank. Carmen Gambrill was the winner of a unique piece of jewelry from Dickinson Jewelers.

The 2017 Bugeye Ball Sponsors included: Top Hat Party Design, Printing Press, Inc., Eileen and Steve Bildman, BB&T Bank, Bruce Newell, Calvert Health, Marianne Harms, KBRwyle, Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa, AMEWAS, Incorporated, CTI, Dixie Miller & Jim Ritter, Dominion Cove Point LNG, Don & Jean McDougall, Holly Management, The Lighthouse Restaurant & Dock Bar, R.A.
