On Monday , May 20 from 5-7 PM, Meals of Hope will hold a Happy Hour for Hope Fundraiser on the MARCO ISLAND PRINCESS themarcoislandprincess.com/rain or shine.
THAT IS NEXT MONDAY!
The PRINCESS is a terrific 85-foot yacht that cruises the waters around Marco for lunch, dinner and sightseeing.MARCO ISLAND PRINCESS is also available for private parties. Captained by RODGER PARCELLES she never has rough seas and events coordinated by ROBIN SHIFFLETT are always smooth as well. We will not be leaving port so even landlubbers can join us.
What a great event last month at Old Marco Pub www.oldmarcopub.com/. SUSAN and TOM ACKERSON and their staff did a great job. Even better, SUSAN ACKERSON was awarded SUNRISE ROTARY Unsung Hero for all her work with Korks for Kids. Congratulations SUSAN and thank you for all you do.
And, thank you MARCO ISLAND KIWANIS www.marcokiwanis.org/for staffing our last Happy Hour.
WE NEED MONEY!
Thank you to everyone supporting these events. They are fun, but they are critical to our ability to feed the hungry. We are really short on fundraising so far this year so if you can’t make an event (or even if you can), please make an extra donation. We need $50,000 to buy food products for our packaging event and after FRIENDS OF HOPE and donations from SUNRISE ROTARY, NOONTIME ROTARY, KIWANIS We still need almost $30,000 and our Happy Hours only generate about $1000-$1400 each. So…PLEASE BE GENEROUS.
Speaking of donations, thank you ROSETTA STONE. She entertains with her husband Tom at no charge and even buys 50/50 tickets. She will be adding her wonderful voice to our fundraiser.
SUNRISE ROTARY marcoislandsunriserotary.org/ will be volunteering this month. Thinking about joining a service club? Come to our Happy Hour and talk to some of the Rotarians.
