CBM's ultimate Chesapeake holiday gift basket is valued at over $2,000.

Congrats to CBM’s Ultimate Chesapeake Holiday Gift Basket Winner!

We spent last fall scouting great holiday gifts for loved ones who live the Bay lifestyle all year round. With a value of more than $2,000, our December gift basket was the ultimate Chesapeake collection of goodies.

Congratulations, Maggie!

It couldn’t have gone to a more deserving winner: Maggie Vaughan, of Hampton, Virginia, received her gift basket full of goodies and can’t wait to put it to use, both this winter and in the spring when she ventures back out in her jon boat.
