7th Annual Bald Eagle Bash - April 23, 2016
What is better than watching the sunset over Weeks Bay while enjoying fresh gulf shrimp and listening to awesome music? Not much! That is why the Weeks Bay Foundation is excited to host our 7th annual Bald Eagle Bash on April 23rd from 4-7pm. This great event helps to raise money and awareness for the Foundation’s mission of protecting coastal wetlands.
This “taste of Weeks Bay” event brings a dozen area restaurants together to create dishes based on delicious gulf shrimp. The chefs each prepare a signature dish that is sure to delight all participants. After a few moments to digest, the crowd gets the chance to cut a rug to the tunes of The Mulligan Brothers. This group has recently toured throughout Europe and has been featured on the Al.com list of Alabama bands to watch in 2016. Take a listen to their tunes at www.themulliganbrothers.com
Weeks Bay Foundation board member, Jim Gaines, says “The Bash is an amazing family friendly event that really showcases local seafood and local musical talent.” Located right on Weeks Bay, many attendees come by boat, and families fish off the pier while children run through the grass. If this sounds like fun, make sure to get your tickets for this year’s Bald Eagle Bash.
The Weeks Bay Foundation is a nonprofit land trust the works to protect Alabama’s amazing coastal wetlands. This fundraiser helps us spread the word about how important wetlands are to our environment, economy, and wellbeing. It also allows us to raise funds to protect properties from future development. It really is a Party for Preservation!
