A celebration to wish away the winter blues.

NEW BEDFORD, MA (03.12.10) – – On Friday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m., Co-Chairs Patricia A. Jayson and Eugene A. Monteiro will host the inaugural winter fundraiser, Bermuda Shorts and Knobbly Knees, at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

Ditch the winter doldrums and join folks at the Whaling Museum for a fun-filled, laid-back, Bermudian-themed affair. Caribbean style hors d’oeuvres, entrées, and tropical desserts will be provided by Russell Morin Fine Catering. Festive cocktails are sponsored by Gosling’s Rums of Bermuda, featuring their trademark concoctions, Dark ‘n Stormies®, Dark ‘n Skinnies, and aged sipping rum. Moby D Beer, a locally craft-brewed version of the American Ale, and sumptuous red and white wines from Travessia Urban Winery will also be on tap.

Entertainment will feature live Calypso and Jazz with the PanNeubean Steel Band, as well as a silent auction and raffle. Attendees in Bermuda shorts and black socks will win a door prize!

This event is sponsored in part by Henry J. Wheelwright of UBS Wealth Management. Proceeds will support programming at the Whaling Museum.
