We need your help! We have strived to keep CBMM's 59 staff employed, maintain our 18-acre waterfront, and to continue to ensure our precious collection of Chesapeake Bay heritage remains protected and cared for.
Every day our gates are closed, we are losing much-needed revenue.
Your Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum recently put out a request to our closest friends, to seek their help to preserve CBMM as the same organization you know and love. Marc Castelli, a true Chesapeake Bay champion, heard our call for support.
Marc has generously donated one of his original watercolors for auction, with all proceeds benefiting CBMM's operations.
With this auction, purchase a treasured memory of the Chesapeake Bay, and benefit CBMM. The auction will run from midnight April 30 to midnight May 8. Please register to participate, and to receive regular auction-action updates! (We are new to the auction game, so if you run into any troubles, please let us know.)
This crisis has impacted everyone. Our hearts go out to those on the frontlines, the families who have been hurting, and to every member of this community.
While our gates are closed, our hearts are open. Thank you, Marc; and THANK YOU!
