Holiday Party at Sand Castle Winery Benefits SPLASH Steamboat in Lambertville

SPLAS Steamboat | New Hope Free PressSand Castle Winery in Erwinna will be hosting this year’s holiday party benefiting the SPLASH Steamboat on Sunday, Dec. 11.

For over ten years, the SPLASH (Student Participation in Learning) Steamboat Floating Classroom has delighted school and adult groups with two-hour educational sails on the Delaware River in Lambertville.

Who’s invited to the party?

“Anyone who wants to know about the SPLASH Steamboat, our mission, and our events,” say organizers. “We’ll be joined by the SPLASH crew, volunteers, friends, donors, educators and their spouses, along with community partners like Swan Creek Rowing Club and Bucks County Dragon Boat Association.”

The fun begins at 4:30 p.m. with wine pairings and winery tours, followed by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres (cash bar) at 5:30 p.m., and dinner at 6:30 p.m. A SPLASH 2016 Highlights Movie (15 minutes) rounds out the party.

It all takes place on Sunday, Dec. 11 at Sand Castle Winery, 755 River Road (Route 32), in Erwinna.

SPLAS Steamboat | New Hope Free PressEach steamboat trip presents an excellent opportunity to see local wildlife — perhaps a bald eagle, cormorants, water snakes, or blue herons, say organizers. Students learn in a “hands-on” way about the watershed and ways to protect its, and experience first-hand “America’s First Great Invention.”

Delaware River Steamboat Floating Classroom, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit. Their goal is to educate children and events about the importance of the watershed through fun and educational events.
