Rock the Boat – Benefit for NAMA – November 7th

Hey… Let’s Rock The Boat!

Join us for Rock The Boat, on Friday, November 7, 2014, 6:30-9:30pm at the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA 02143. This fundraiser is a benefit for Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), www.namanet.org.

For almost 20 years NAMA has been rocking the boat! We’ve been shaking up the systems, policies, processes, markets and narratives that are dominating fishery policies and marine conservation. Rock The Boat is NAMA’s first benefit event featuring, art, food, education, and an auction. The evening will be joined by singer-songwriter Chelsea Berry and the Bob Marley tribute band, Hope Road.

Dance to the music of singer-songwriter Chelsea Berry and groove to the tunes of Bob Marley tribute band Hope Road. Enjoy food provided by supportive restaurants and hospitals – yes we said hospitals! – creating delicious bites using regional sea and land food. Snack on vegetarian raviolis rolled out all night by Joe Gatto of “From Scratch” TV. Imbibe on some local beer, wine and healthy sodas. Learn from thoughtful chefs. Take part in a silent auction. Celebrate our living fishing economies. And support our efforts to keep rocking the boat!

If you can’t make it, buy a ticket for someone who can but can’t afford it by checking the “Rock the Boat Without Me!” ticket box. We’ll prioritize distributing those tickets to fishing community advocates.

See you November 7th! Come Rock the Boat with us!

Rock the Boat aims to fund programs in continuing the work of NAMA to:

  • Promote taking control of the seafood in our food system
  • Increase awareness about racial equity, economic justice, and food access
  • Celebrate the work of community-based fishermen everywhere
  • Inform fisheries policy makers about the importance of support for community-based, independent fishermen and their families
  • Advocate for small and medium scale fishermen
  • Support food workers along the entire food chain
