Marco Island Meals of Hope confirmed today its next “Happy Hour for Hope” will be Monday, February 27, 2017 at Marco Island Brewery from 5 PM to 7 PM. Marco Island Brewery is located in Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island.
Frank and Lynette LaCava and the “Brew Crew” of the Brewery look forward to the event. They will make available drinks at happy hour prices and a delicious spread of hors d’oeuvres. Frank LaCava stated, “I feel it is for a great cause. We do not take a dollar for the food and it is not about the money. One hundred percent of the profit goes to the charity. And, what they are doing is helping local people.” Rosetta Stone will provide entertainment as she has done for many years.
Happy Hours for Hope are fundraisers for Marco Island’s Meals of Hope. The $10 admission fee helps the organization buy food forits packaging event in November. According to local attorney Bill “Captain Hope” Morris, “It costs over $45,000 to buy food materials for our Marco Island packaging event. These happy hours are critical. Even with a good turnout, our happy hours only raise about 1/3 of the funds needed. We will need some generous donors to reach our goal.”
Marco Meals of Hope is a joint effort of Kiwanis, Noontime Rotary and Sunrise Rotary Clubs. It is a hands-on approach to combating hunger in our community. Volunteers work year-round raising funds for its packaging event at Marco Island Charter Middle School. Last year, volunteers packed over 250,000 meals for distribution through the Meals of Hope distribution network. This year, organizers hope to do even more at the packaging event on November 18, 2017.
Admission to Happy Hour for Hope is only $10 and everyone is invited.
