The Queen of All Food Drives
2014 Eastport Yacht Club Parade of Lights Update
We are regrettably NOT hosting a Food Drive for the 2014 Parade of Lights. Harbor Queen will be undergoing winter maintenance during this time and is unavailable to be used as a viewing platform. We hope to host this event again in the future.
If you'd like to watch the Parade of Lights with Watermark, see more information about our Lights Parade Dinner and Dessert Cruise on Catherine Marie.
About the 2013 Queen of All Food Drives
The 2013 Eastport Yacht Club Parade of Lights took place on a rainy evening but we didn't let it dampen our Food Drive fun! Along with our special guests from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, we welcomed guests onboard for a dry place to watch the Parade. Guests munched on treats from Wegman's, enjoyed hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps from the bar and watched the lighted boats strut their stuff through the Annapolis Harbor. Our friends from WNAV 1430 also joined us for the evening and broadcasted live from the boat. A few lucky guests -- including our "living Christmas tree" -- were interviewed on the air.
In the past three years, The Queen of All Food Drives has raised thousands of dollars in cash donations and thousands of pounds of food for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. In Anne Arundel County, 1 in 16 residents are below the poverty line and over 1/3 are children. The fundraiser was sponsored by the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to hosting this special event again in 2014!
