The event is unique among island fundraisers for its bayside location on Causeway Island A, where guests enjoy sunset views over San Carlos Bay and an evening of stargazing. This year, there will be great music, a delicious and sustainable dinner, and a variety of opportunities to support the school’s ocean conservation mission, along with a few 10th birthday surprises.
