GRA­SONVILLE — Come dressed in your chic trop­i­cal wear and en­joy an evening with Caribbean flair at Ch­e­sa­peake Bay En­vi­ron­men­tal Cen­ter’s Wet & Wild Auc­tion on Satur­day, Sept. 16, from 6 to 9 p.m. in their Ed­u­ca­tion Build­ing in Gra­sonville. Pro­ceeds will help CBEC ex­pand its youth and adult en­vi­ron­men­tal ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams.

The evening in­cludes cock­tails and din­ner catered by Bridges Restau­rant. Or­lando Phillips’ is­land mu­sic, fea­tur­ing his steel drums, will add to the Caribbean theme. Live and silent auc­tion items, as usual, will be in­ter­est­ing and unique.

This year’s raf­fle of­fers a chance to win a Royal Caribbean Cruise for two to the Ba­hamas or Caribbean. Raf­fle tick­ets are $50 each and only 200 will be sold. Win­ning ticket will be drawn at the Wet & Wild Auc­tion, and win­ner need not be present.

The auc­tion com­mit­tee is re­quest­ing that com­mu­nity mem­bers and busi­nesses sup­port the event by be­com­ing spon­sors, do­nat­ing auc­tion items, and at­tend­ing the event.
