2019 Sea of Opportunities Benefit Luncheon

August 7 Luncheon

Join Egan Maritime at the 2019 Sea of Opportunities Benefit Luncheon to honor one of Nantucket's most beloved and treasured community members, Harbor Master Sheila Lucey. We are proud to honor Sheila and her immeasurable contributions to the island, including safeguarding and protecting Nantucket’s waters. Her unparalleled admiration for Nantucket and its people is inspiring and commendable, and her impact extends far beyond the waters surrounding the island.

Additionally, Egan Maritime will toast our founding members in celebration of our 30 years of serving Nantucket. Special remarks will be given by Egan's first Executive Director, award-winning author, Nathaniel Philbrick.

To purchase tickets, please call Egan Maritime's Administrative Offices at 508-228-2505

The proceeds collected from the Benefit Luncheon will directly impact and support Egan Maritime's Sea of Opportunities maritime education program. Since it’s launch in 2012, Sea of Opportunities has been supported in large part by board capital gifts. Now in its seventh year, Egan Maritime has incorporated the program’s annual $250,000 expense into its operations. The Benefit Luncheon helps create sustainable support for this vital island program.
