It's time for our annual dockside celebration of clean water!

Cocktails & Clams—Saturday, June 11; 5:00-7:00pm

Join us at Copps Island Oysters on Norwalk Harbor for an amazing evening of shellfish straight from the boat, cocktails and live music.

We’ll also have a silent auction with incredible opportunities, like an evening at Rao’s. This famed New York restaurant is a culinary national treasure serving exquisite Italian food since 1896. And, unless you are a regular,  a reservation is impossible to get. But, at Cocktails & Clams you can bid on a table for your chance to dine with the who’s who of New York. 

So, get your tickets today before we’re all sold out!

Tickets are $75 per person, $85 at the door. 
Adults only, please.
