Sail Baltimore Portside Party

Fans of Sail Baltimore – and its efforts bringing ships from around the world to visit Baltimore for free public tours – gathered at Bo Brooks for its biggest fundraising party of the year.

Guests filled the restaurant, catching up with old friends, browsing the buffet…
…and having fun bidding in the silent auction.
