All happening before the Saturday night festivities start—so arrive early. There will be music, food, beer from Brooklyn Brewery, a Margarita Cash Bar, a Wine Pull, and a Silent Auction. There will be a wide range of auction items and baskets available for bidding and the Wine Pull will cost $20 per bottle. Unique prizes for the tricky tray...it’s going to be a great time. All proceeds go towards purchasing some much needed new equipment for Nereid’s Youth Rowing Programs.
