Supporters joined us on Saturday June 23rd at the Oyster Room at Onley Town Center for an evening of good fun, great food, and a celebration of 30 years and 46 houses built for those in need of safe housing on the Shore.
We had some unique experiences which livened-up the auction like a 45 minute scenic flight for up to 3 people donated by Eastern Shore Aviation and a fishing trip for 2 on the Miss Jennifer. Of course there were valuable restaurant gift certificates for Bill’s Prime and Bizzottos, a bushel of crabs from Martin Seafood, retail gift certificates from Voiajers and Vernon Powell, even lodging at a campground. An oil painting by William Crockett and Box Turtle sculpture from David Turner were two of the stars of our live auction.
The final results are in for the 2018 February Freeze and they are AMAZING! Celebrity Dippers Robie Marsh and Evelyn Shotwell (below 2nd from right) led six teams and 94 dippers into the Chesapeake Bay at Cape Charles and $35,701 in pledges was raised to help us complete our mission to complete two homes this year for families in need of safe housing on the Shore.
