The Bugeye Ball

Bugeye Ball 2014


The Bugeye Club Rolls Again!

The Bugeye Ball will take you to the era of the Riverboat. The menu is inspired by the rich, southern feel of New Orleans. Entertaining music will be featured throughout the night and casino tables will test your luck. A few will walk away with fabulous prizes, and one will win a week-long stay in Tuscany.

As an attendee to the Bugeye Ball you will be one of the very first to see the spectacular changes we have made to better serve our community. See you on the Riverboat!

On Saturday, May 10th, the Calvert Marine Museum’s Bugeye Ball will welcome you to the wonderful era of the Riverboat. With plans for this premier evening underway, the Ball Committee is designing a night not only focused on thanking our friends, but a night to unveil the new Harms Gallery and other renovations that have taken place over the winter. There will be great food, live entertainment, gaming tables, elegant décor and many other surprises.

The attendance at The Bugeye Ball has increased by 50% in the past few years. This growing attendance makes sponsoring the Ball a great way to get your name out and meet many influential people in our area.

I hope you are as excited as we are about this opportunity to highlight the museum — as an attendee at the Ball you will be one of the very first to see first-hand the spectacular changes we have made to better serve our community. I look forward to spending time with you at the Bugeye Ball on May 10, 2014.

Sincerely,
Eileen Bildman
Bugeye Ball Chairperson

Funds raised by the 2014 Bugeye Ball will support the new exhibit River to Bay: Reflections and Connections.

This $500,000 Estuarium renovation is transforming the hall into an immersive, interactive experience that introduces you to the animals in the bay, environmental challenges, and human impacts. The hall includes three habitat zones: In the Deep Open Waters, Sheltering Shallows, and Coastal Plains. A fourth zone focuses on Survival Strategies, highlighting the remarkable adaptions animals make to survive. In the Eco-Invaders exhibit, a new circular Lionfish tank will be installed to display the bay’s newest threat. The experience wraps-up with an opportunity for you to make a difference by joining Team Chesapeake. This online website gets you involved with helping protect the Chesapeake Bay.

Thank you for helping to make this exciting transformation possible!
