OCEAN CITY, MD – August 15, 2017 – Reservations are now being taken for “Blues on the Bay” at Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill in Ocean City, the annual September party that celebrates the fall season in the resort and also raises money for an important cause — The Macky and Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.

Blues on the Bay will be held at Macky’s on 54th St. bayside in Ocean City on Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. Singer and saxophonist Everett Spells will provide the musical entertainment, and reservations include an open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and a front-row view of the sunset over the bay.

Last year, Blues on the Bay raised more than $39,000 for the capital campaign to build The Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, a new hospice residence and outreach center coming to Ocean Pines.

Macky’s owner, Walter “Macky” Stansell, is a long-time supporter of Coastal Hospice and co-chair of the capital campaign commitee to build the hospice home. The residence was recently named The Macky and Pam Stansell House in honor of the generous contributions the couple has made towards the project.

“We urge everyone to come out, have some fun, and support a great cause,” Stansell said. “We’re close to breaking ground on the new home, and funds raised from Blues on the Bay will be a tremendous help to the project.”

The new residence will provide rooms for 12 hospice patients who lack an able caregiver at home and can no longer manage independently. Each room will be outfitted to support medical care, yet furnished to feel like home. The home will also offer palliative care, counseling, grief support, and community wellness programs.

Reservations for Blues on the Bay are $75 per person and may be made at or by calling 410-742-8732.
