Kathy Zagzebski, Executive Director of the National Marine Life Center (NMLC) in Buzzards Bay, announced that this year's Mermaid Ball will be held on Friday, June 22.
The ball is the Center's largest annual fundraiser and brings in much-needed donations which go toward the rehabilitation of stranded seals and turtles, educating both children and adults on marine life and animal preservation, and contributing to the global scientific information about seals and turtles.
The ball is a fun event featuring dinner, dancing, silent auction and a costume contest. Attire is costume or "creative black tie."
Volunteers are working hard on bringing in some fabulous auction items, including a Patriots football jersey signed by Gronk, and a weekend in New Hampshire's White Mountains.
This year's event will be held at the White Cliffs Country Club in Plymouth. For tickets or further information go to mermaidball.com or call (508) 743-9888.
