Annual Summer Social

Date July 22, 2021
Location Essex Yacht Club
Time 5:30 - 9:30PM
+ optional afternoon activities


We’ve received a number of requests for late registration and, thus, are reopening registration for 24 hours only. We will close registration Tuesday, July 19th at noon.

Once again, we are hosting our annual Summer Social at the wonderful Essex Yacht Club. Members and an invited guest are welcome as well as past Presidents and our Sponsors. As always, you can look forward to enjoying our cocktail reception on the beautiful patio overlooking the marina, followed by a buffet dinner in the main dining room.

This year, we will once again be having our “Wall of Wine” raffle so guests are all asked to bring a bottle (or two!) of wine to contribute. All proceeds will be divided up for the benefit of both the CREW Network Foundation and a scholarship for one lucky attendee to attend the 2021 CREW Network Convention, which will be held in Las Vegas this September (scholarship application details to follow).
