2019 Schedule of Fundraising Events 

Hello! I am Peggy Tomeo Richards, Director of Special Events for our wonderful Marine Mammal Stranding Center. 


Our 2019 fundraising calendar is filled with fun and exciting events that we hope you can attend! 

We begin the year with our 3rd annual “Ales for Whales” that is being held at the Hidden Sands Brewing Company in Egg Harbor Township on Thursday, January 24th from 6:00 to 9:00PM.
Twenty six fabulous area restaurants are graciously donating their specialty dishes, and Hidden Sands will be featuring some of their wonderful craft beers. All this for the low price of $35.00!
This event was a sell out last year so purchase your tickets early! The tickets would make great Christmas gifts!  

On Thursday, March 28, 2019 we travel down the Parkway to the Nauti Spirits Distillery, a beautiful place with a 60 acre preserved coastal farm where they produce handcrafted farm spirits. Stay tuned for more information on this fundraising event!  

On Saturday, May 18th the Stranding Center will once again host our annual 5K generously sponsored by the Laguna Bar and Grill in Brigantine. Join us for this fun day for a great cause! Entry price includes a full breakfast buffet, shirt and beautiful prizes for each age group. 

Join us for “Christmas in July”, July 25th, as we board the Atlantic City Cruises boat (generously donated by owner and captain, Jeff George) 7:30 at Gardners Basin and experience a beautiful sunset, great music and food! Wear your favorite Christmas attire and have fun with family and friends. All ages welcome!

One Atlantic Events will once again host our largest fundraising event of the year, Dancing With Dolphins Gala, on August 8th from 6:00 to 9:30. If you have never attended the Gala, this is one that you won’t want to miss! This beautiful venue, with gorgeous ocean views, and fabulous cuisine, is all donated by One Atlantic Events for which we are most grateful! Be wowed by our great auction items and awesome music and dancing.

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope that you are happy and healthy in however you choose to celebrate this day. We are truly thankful for you, our followers and donors, who have helped us continue the work we do here in NJ – rescuing marine mammals and sea turtles.

As we gear up for our busiest season of all (here come the seals!), our goal is to stay better connected with you, bringing you updates and information here on our website and through our social media sites. We hope you will find what we post to be useful, helpful, and interesting!

It is officially the season for giving and we have some great options if you are looking for a gift that “gives back!” If you’re in the area, come on over to our gift shop, open on Saturdays from 10-2 for some unique and fun sea-themed items. You can also pick up long-sleeved tees or sweatshirts to keep your loved ones warm this winter.

Seal adoptions make a great option for that person who has “everything.” No, they cannot keep the seal in their bathtub (we promise you they wouldn’t want to anyway), but they can proudly display their personalized adoption certificate and photo combo!

If you haven’t done so already, please check out our #GivingTuesday campaign for our new Seal Building here: https://mmsc.org/ways-to-donate/givingtuesday

We hope you will consider making a donation to help with the care of the many seals we expect to see this winter.
