Would you like to enjoy a summer evening on the waterfront on the deck of the USS Little Rock at the Buffalo Naval Park? You can if you join Explore Buffalo for their summer fundraiser, Ships ‘n’ Bottles! This special event is in support of Explore Buffalo’s educational mission and with your support, the organization can continue to grow its programming, particularly educational programs for schoolchildren.
Guests will enjoy live music by Buffalo Brass Machine, a high-energy, New Orleans-style brass band. A silent auction will give you the opportunity to win unique Buffalo summer experiences. Tours of the ships at the Buffalo Naval Park are also included as part of this event.
Food will be provided by Current Catering, and two drink tickets for beer and wine are included, with beer provided by Big Ditch Brewing Co. Local distilleries will also be providing samples of their products. And, the sunset view from the deck of the USS Little Rock is spectacular!
Space is limited at this event, scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 13. Tickets are $50, or $45 for Explorer Pass holders. Tickets will be sold at the door only if there are some available. This is a 21+ event. Cameras are welcome and photos are encouraged!
