About our event

The Billion Oyster Party, the Billion Oyster Project's annual fundraiser, is the ultimate oyster eating and education experience. At the Billion Oyster Party, guests interact with farmers and chefs while enjoying live music, unlimited oysters from 50 oyster farms, and delicious bites from 20 top NYC restaurants. Guests learn about the programmatic achievements of BOP from the last year and program partners are present to speak about their work with the Billion Oyster Project.

The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is a certified 501(c)(3) on a mission to restore oyster reefs to NY Harbor through public education initiatives. We do our work because we believe that education is more engaging and exciting when learning happens by doing and that when students are empowered to play a meaningful role in a large-scale ecosystem restoration project, they excel. Similarly, our natural environment and the ecosystems where we live cannot thrive without the care and stewardship of people from diverse backgrounds. Billion Oyster Project engages the community directly in the work of restoring one billion oysters through its education program which has built restoration based STEM education for middle and high schoolers, its shell collection program which works with 75 restaurants to collect oyster shells for reef substrate, and through its volunteer program which welcomes the community at large to get involved in hands on restoration work. To date Billion Oyster Project has restored 30 million oysters and 7 acres of habitat. Restoring oysters and reefs will restore the local marine ecosystem’s natural mechanisms for maintaining itself, resulting in cleaner water and greater biodiversity.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Funds raised from the event go directly towards supporting Billion Oyster Project's restoration and education work. By supporting the event, the sponsor will allow us to get more oyster reefs in the water to provide habitat, filter water, and protect shoreline while in the meantime growing the next generation of environmental stewards. 

The Billion Oyster Party gathers 1200 supporters from the NYC area that:

- Love eating oysters

- Spend on unique cultural experiences and special dining adventures

- Choose to support environmental efforts and public education initiatves focused on science and the marine environment

- Care about supporting local businesses and nonprofits

Our guests LOVE this event and are loyal supporters of both the project and the party. The event has grown from a 300 person event in 2015 to a 1500 person event in 2019 due to word of mouth and earned media. The event has been featured in the New York Times, Edible Magazine, Grub Street, New York Mag and more!

The Billion Oyster Party also gathers 80 chefs from NYC's top restaurants and 150 oyster farmers from across the United States. The chefs that participate are in partnership with Billion Oyster Project year round through the project's food waste reduction program - it's Shell Collection Program. The chefs that participate in the shell collection program donate spent oyster shells from their restaurants year to round to the project to use as reef substrate. 

Companies wishing to get in front of any of these demographics can design bespoke sponsorships and activations at the event.

Hello,

My name is Maddy Wachtel and I'm the Deputy Director of the Billion Oyster Project. We produce the Billion Oyster Party, our annual fundraiser, in-house and care deeply about the event's success and building long-term partnerships that are mutually beneficial. The event is now in its 6th year and has grown steadily overtime. Of our 30 sponsors last year, 19 were repeat sponsors. Only 2 sponsors who supported in 2018, did not to sponsor in 2019. All sponsors work directly with me and I take great care to ensure that our sponsors' needs are met. Prior to my work at Billion Oyster Project, I managed large-scale food events and restaurants. 

I hope you'll consider supporting our work through a sponsorship of the Billion Oyster Party. In today's climate, our work needs your support more than ever!
