Homeport by the Bay 2019 – A Huge Success!
May 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
What an incredible evening! This year’s Homeport by the Bay gala and benefit auction held on May 30 at Wequassett Resort was a smashing success.
Thanks to those in attendance, we raised an astounding $110,000 to support the Center’s research, rescue and education programs; of this, more than $60,000 was pledged during Fund-A-Need which directly benefits the groundbreaking work conducted by Dr. Jooke Robbins and the Humpback Whale Studies Program.
A percentage of the income generated is reserved for the Ruth Hiebert Memorial Fellowship, which provides annual scholarships to outstanding women who are pursuing careers in marine science. This year the Fellowship will be awarded in the fall at a special event celebrating women in science. Stay tuned for more details later this summer.
We are very grateful for the support of the following 2019 Corporate Sponsors and Homeport Patrons:

Tickets are $195 per person; a table for ten, with special recognition as a CCS Patron, is $2,000.
This event benefits the Center for Coastal Studies’ research, rescue, and education programs. A portion of the proceeds also benefits the Ruth Hiebert Memorial Fellowship, which provides annual scholarships to outstanding women associated with the Center for Coastal Studies who are pursuing studies in marine science.
