Thank you to our 2020 At Anchor: A Stay-at-Home Soiree Sponsors and Donors.

A Seafood Soiree, the Center’s annual gala, features more than a dozen signature seafood dishes created by area chefs and showcasing local seafood donated by the fishing industry. Held at the historic Wamsutta Club at the James Arnold Mansion and attended by 150 guests, the event also features live music, an auction, and a cash bar.

In 2020, the event was adapted due to COVID and featured an online auction with an in-person kick-off event and sale of our Bounty of the South Coast Coupon and Recipe Booklet. We are hopeful that we will be able to present the in person event in the fall of 2021.

Stay tuned for details!

In the meantime enjoy photos from the 2019 and 2020 events.
