Grab your iPad, laptop, or smart phone – Night on the Sound 2021 is going virtual. 

In light of increased cases and concern of COVID-19 and the Delta variant in our area, the Port Royal Sound Foundation has re-imagined its biggest event of the year. 

Now in its seventh year, this signature fundraising event is a fan favorite. Historically, the Foundation has hosted its friends and benefactors at the Maritime Center for an evening full of fun and entertainment. 

To support the Maritime Center and its educational programs, the Foundation is asking supporters to purchase “no show” tickets to this year’s Night on the Sound. One hundred percent of each ticket purchase is a tax-deductible donation that will help keep the Maritime Center free for the community. 

Supporters who want to explore and enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer can place their bids in the three-day virtual auction filled with local adventures and experiences in, on and around the Port Royal Sound. Supporters will have the opportunity to browse and bid on items right from the comfort of their own home. Day trips, fishing experiences, family activities and more will be featured – all proceeds will support the Foundation’s important mission. 

And for the big event, the Foundation will launch the virtual auction with a video release party on Thursday, Oct. 14. Featuring several of the Foundation’s community partners and friends, this presentation will give supporters an in-depth look at the important mission and work of the Port Royal Sound Foundation and what it means to them and the future of the Sound. 

Important dates: 

The virtual auction will be online only. The auction will open for bidding at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, and close at 9 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 17. Visit one.bidpal.net/nightonthesound to browse. 

The video release party will coincide with the start of the auction at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14.
