Pearl Anniversary Celebrated in Style

Evening for the Bay: The Reef Ball presented by Honest 1 Auto Care on October 21 was the most successful event in TBW history thanks to the Tampa Bay community! Over 400 guests dressed in their comfortable cocktail attire to celebrate 30 years of restoring the bay every day. The gala featured appetizers by Bonefish Grill, an elegant al fresco dinner by Saltblock Catering, and bundtinis for dessert by Nothing Bundt Cakes on the Tampa Bay Watch Marine Center lawn, bar service by Great Bay Distributors, Vertical Spirits, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and auctions featuring beautiful artwork and exclusive getaways. The night was complete with entertainment by The TomKats, a live painting by artist and staff member Reagan Fennessy, and a magnificent Tampa Bay Watch sunset! A grand total of $285,000 was raised for restoration, education, and outreach that will propel TBW to be a leader in community environmentalism. Thank you very much to all of the sponsors, guests, vendors, auction donors, and volunteers who contributed to the success of the event!
