Sustainable Seafood Soiree to benefit the Rockfall Foundation
Join us in supporting environmental education and raising awareness of local, sustainable food sources!
This unique event will take place at the beautiful and “Green Lodging Certified” Saybrook Point Inn. Hearty hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer will be served on the patio overlooking the majestic marina, surrounded by fresh salt air and breathtaking views. A key component is the opportunity to raise awareness of local, responsible shellfish farming by featuring a fresh oyster raw bar supplied by our partners with the Noank Aquaculture Cooperative. Members of the Cooperative are local shellfish farmers who focus on growing some of the finest oysters in the Northeast. As the oysters from our region are the most coveted in the world, the Cooperative is fortunate to have many fine oyster brands, including Mystic Oysters and Thimble Island Oysters.
Proceeds will support environmental education programs of the Rockfall Foundation, including our “Greening Kids” grant program. Environmental literacy is an essential part of education and ensures that young people have a better understanding of how to care for the world around them. Nurturing future environmental stewards is a priority area for the Rockfall Foundation.
