Daddy Christmas

  • Since 1989, The ShipMates Club of Baltimore has been hosting “Daddy Christmas-” an annual fundraising event that benefits local charities.  Each year, the clubs membership selects a beneficiary for the event which occurs on the first Saturday of December.   The event features photos with Santa, a silent auction, our “famous” porn flea market, and our signature “Basket of Cheer” raffle.

    The “Basket of Cheer” is comprised of donations of hard liquor, beer, wine, and mixers that is raffled off at the end of the event.  Our raffle tickets have become an integral part of the success of “Daddy Christmas” and can be purchased from any member beginning in the summer months leading up to the event.

    The club is always looking for donations (items, gift certificates, etc.) from local businesses for the silent auction.  Donating to “Daddy Christmas” is a great way to give back to the community.  If you are interested in donating, please click the link below or email us at

    See you at the next DADDY CHRISTMAS!

    Ho Ho in the Heat:

    “Ho Ho in the Heat” is the official kick-off party for “Daddy Christmas.”  This event is a great way to get involved, meet the club, and give back to our community.  “Ho Ho in the Heat” features an all-u-can-eat barbecue  our “infamous” porn flea market, club bar specials, and of course door prizes.  A small suggested donation is greatly appreciated and it’s the first opportunity of the year to get your “Basket of Cheer” raffle tickets!  See you in July!
