Ogeechee Riverkeeper has unveiled plans for their main fundraising event of the year, the fourth Annual Oysters for the Ogeechee, which will take place from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2 at the Isle of Hope Marina, located at 50 West Bluff Drive, Savannah.
Back by popular demand, Moon River Brewing Company will serve its specially brewed, unique Ogeechee Riverkeeper Spiced Pale Ale, made with locally harvested gallberry honey and local organic ginger root (from Verdant Kitchen), which give the beer a gentle, spicy palate and a light body. Guests will enjoy unlimited steamed oysters and a selection of “land lover’s” fare from Barnes Catering. DJ OB-1 Benob will be spinning classic rock tunes, and attendees will have the chance to bid on an impressive array of silent auction items, such vacations, local art, gift baskets from area businesses and more.
This year’s early event sponsors include Milliken, Isle of Hope Marina, Barnes Catering, Ambos Seafood and Moon River Brewing Company.
Tickets booked in advance are priced at an affordable $45 per ticket and $40 per ticket if there are two or more in your group. Tickets purchased the day of the event will be an additional $5 each. There is the option to purchase a VIP wristband, available only in advance, for $90 per ticket or $80 per ticket for groups of two or more people. VIP wristbands include prime parking, private seating, a personal oyster cooker and server, and a full open bar. Corporate and individual sponsorships are still available starting at $500.
