Spoiler Alert! – Mermaid Ball Auction Items


Come one, come all to the fifth annual Mermaid Ball! As many of you know the Mermaid Ball is the National Marine Life Center’s premiere fundraising event. We invite mermaid lovers a-like to join us Saturday August 25th 2012 from 6-10:30 PM at Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee. Tickets are available on-line, over the phone by calling 508-743-9888, or in person by visiting 120 Main Street, Buzzards Bay.

Here at the National Marine Life Center we are very excited about this year’s silent and live auction, which will feature a “spa-tacular package”, beautiful and unique furniture pieces, a Nantucket getaway for two, and much more! All the proceeds raised by the Mermaid Ball benefit the National Marine Life Center’s marine wildlife rehabilitation, science, and education programs.

Is the thought of summer ending getting you overwhelmed? Could you use a day at the  spa? Don’t fret! We have put together a pamper-filled package, which includes a fifty-dollar gift certificate to any spa or restaurant in the Catania Hospitality Group, bath salts and sea themed matches for your ocean splash candle. 

The furniture pieces featured this year are all one of a kind and beautifully crafted. One of our most unique pieces is a Antique Cane Seat Rocking Chair, which once belonged to a whaling captain’s home in New Bedford. Other furniture pieces include a hand painted children’s stool, a decorative mermaid mirror, and a vintage grandfather clock!

Every year destination packages are one of the more popular featured items. This year we are excited to present our Nantucket getaway for two, which includes two round trip tickets on Cape Air, two passes to Nantucket’s Whaling Museum and two tickets for a Shearwater Excursions “Harbor Cruise”. So pack your bags and enjoy Nantucket from the land, air and sea!

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