5 Reasons You Should Attend Bay Bash

5 Reasons You Should Attend Bay Bash

When: Friday, November 2 at 6 p.m. Where: GulfQuest Maritime Museum

In case you need a little more convincing, here are 5 reasons why you should attend our 21st Annual Bay Bash this Friday:

1. Have More Fun in 21

Mobile Baykeeper loves “Celebrating the Bounty of Mobile Bay” all year long and we need your help to end the year with bang! On Friday, November 2nd we are going to have even more fun turning 21.

2. Celebrate the Bounty of the Bay

What’s a good party without mouthwatering food and cocktails? To quench your weekend appetite, we’ll start the night off with a raw oyster bar, seafood gumbo and much more. Then, you’ll need to wash the savoriness down with a cold beer, glass of wine, or cocktail of choice as you enjoy an evening overlooking the Mobile River set to the sounds of live music you can't help but feel in your soul.

3. Be Entertained with “Silk” and “Soul”

If you know anything about the local music scene, then you probably know Mobile's very own "Singer with Soul" Yo Jonesy quite well. At Bay Bash 2018 Yo Jonesy will be joined by her band The Crowned Jewelz and we think you'll find they offer music fit for a king or queen.

In addition to the soulful sounds, guests will be entertained with a special aerial yoga performance by T'jaden O'Dowd Cox of The Fit Nest. As the silks of blue lift and twist her into the sky, it will be as if a magical water dancer has entered the room, inspiring guests to dance and delight all through the night.

4. Support a Worthy Cause: Baykeeper Patrol & Fund

Your very ticket purchase has a positive impact on the health of your watershed. The funds raised at Bay Bash 2018 will go towards the "Baykeeper Patrol and Protect Fund" to equip Baykeeper Patrol with modern and effective tools to research, track, and resolve your pollution reports. The Baykeeper Patrol Program drives our efforts to address the environmental concerns you see in your neighborhoods, on your daily commutes or at your favorite fishing and swimming holes. You can report any environmental concerns you see here.

5. Shhhh…Maybe Keep this One a Secret

Calling all Parrot Heads, you're going to want to bid on the Jimmy Buffet Concert Package in our Silent Auction. It includes two premium tickets to see Jimmy Buffet almost anywhere in the U.S.A in 2019.

Maybe you like the beach vibe, but concerts aren't your thing. If so, you could place your bid on a Two Night Stay at Turquoise Place in Orange Beach.

From cabin stays to eco tours, from sporting activities to fitness packages, from art to practical and/or pampering services, the Bay Bash Silent Auction has something everyone can bid on. Who knows, it could just be your lucky night!
