Sponsorship Packages for Mermaid’s Kiss 2014

“Mermaid’s Kiss” is the Oyster Recovery Partnership’s annual fundraiser and awards ceremony. It is a celebration of  efforts – past, present and future – to restore the Chesapeake Bay oyster. We celebrate the oyster with friends, food, music and fun. Each year “Mermaid Kiss” showcases fine cuisine from restaurant members of ORP’s Shell Recycling Alliance, beautiful art and jewelry depicting the bay and top music from the region. The event includes a VIP preview party, during which the “It’s My Bay” awards are presented to public policy makers, individuals, corporations and others who have made significant contributions to restoring oysters.

Mermaid’s Kiss is both meaningful and fun. It’s name reflects the old saying that “eating an oyster is like kissing the sea.” We encourage all oyster fans to join us.
