On the eve of August 27, 2011, despite the impending threat of Hurricane Irene, people gathered to celebrate and support the National Marine Life Center at the Mermaid Ball! Chaired by board member Katharine Hurd, the 2011 Mermaid Ball was held at a new venue – Willowbend Country Club – to encourage participation from our supporters farther on Cape. The crowd danced to the dulcet sounds of the GinaMark Band, dined on fabulous cuisine, laughed to the jokes from auctioneer Sean Randall, and enjoyed lively and competitive bidding in both the silent and live auctions.
Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and participants, the 2011 Mermaid Ball was a huge success, raising over $36,000!
