NMLC’s 5th Annual Mermaid Ball (Update)


Join us for the Mermaid Ball!
Lets Play Where All the Mermaid Do
By: Anonymous

Tonight I want to invite you to play
Deep under the ocean where the mermaids stay
Let’s leave our troubles behind
And savor the magic we are bound to find
We will play with the fishes 
And fulfill our wishes
Let’s dance with the creatures of the sea
The mermaids, and just you and me
Let’s pretend for a little while
That we know nothing evil or vile
On the reefs of corral we will kiss
And experience heavenly bliss
And when the night is all over, and we have to leave
Let’s pretend it was real, not just make belief
We can do this over and over again
And maybe one day we will be able forever to remain

On August 25th the National Marine Life Center will be presenting the 5th annual Mermaid Ball at the Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee, MA. Tickets are available on-line, over the phone by calling 508-743-9888, or in person by visiting 120 Main Street, Buzzards Bay. All proceeds from the $125 per person gala will benefit the National Marine Life Center’s marine wildlife rehabilitation, science, and education programs.

For those of you who have never attended a Mermaid Ball, it is one night a year that our guests can release their inner mermaids/mermen. We welcome mermaids, pirates, and sea creatures alike. However, if you’re not the costume type it is an excuse to breakout your best party dress or suit for this semi-formal event.Come in costume or "creative black tie"!

Currently, we are hard at work requesting and receiving donations for our silent and live auction. The silent and live auction features a weekend of activities in Boston, fine dining experiences, sporting and musical event tickets, mermaid themed gifts and much more. As for the entertainment that evening we are proud to present the GinaMark Band.

We hope to see you all on August 25th! For more information please contact the National Marine Life Center at (508) 743-9888.
