Hop aboard for an evening of fun. Dine, dance, savor and sip the evening away as the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay presents their fifth Taste of the Chesapeake gala on Oct. 13 at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore.

The black tie benefit features specialties from the area’s top chefs and will mark the 30th anniversary of the Alliance’s work to restore the Bay. The program will also recognize the 23 years of inspired leadership from outgoing Executive Director Flan Flanigan, and offer a warm welcome to incoming Executive Director David Bancroft.

Chefs from across the region will prepare their signature dishes reflecting the bounty of the Chesapeake complemented by local wine, beer and spirits. Guests will dance the night away to regional jazz sensation, The New Jazz Legacy, in the museum’s historic roundhouse.

Tickets for the event are $75 and $100. To reserve a ticket, call 410-377-6270 and ask for Susan Boyd. All proceeds will support the work of the Alliance.
