Since 1994, the Center for the Inland Bays has worked with our numerous partners to fulfill our mission: to preserve, protect, and restore Delaware’s Inland Bays and their watershed. This September, we’re inviting you to join us in celebrating our progress and ensuring another successful 25 years!

To commemorate our very special anniversary year, the Center is doing its annual fundraiser, usually known as Decked Out, a little differently. We have moved the event out of August and into September, we are taking it offsite to the brand new, bay-front Lighthouse Cove Event Center at the Hyatt Place – Dewey Beach, and we are calling it our 25th Anniversary Gala. The evening will include an open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, a raw bar, dinner, silent and live auctions, and live music by Hot Sauce. Don’t miss this legendary evening of fun and fundraising!


Individual tickets are available for $125 per ticket beginning August 23rd at the link below. If you are interested in purchasing a table, or if you have any questions about the event, please contact:
