It is with gratitude and appreciation that I send this message. On Saturday, December 7, the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF) hosted our annual Caribbean Christmas fundraiser. Our signature festive event was held at Mango’s and raised funds the Center for Inland Bays, plus QRCF grant-giving and scholarship programs. We also collected clothes for the Dagsboro Boys and Girls Club.
I am delighted to preliminarily report that we predict that raised our largest number yet and we look forward to financially helping the Center, and other local organizations and individuals, and continue to do our good work.
This gift was made possible by the many sponsors, volunteers, and guests who attended the event. Thanks to our sponsors: Bethany Blues, Beach Liquors, Cottage Café, Harpoon Hannah’s, The Heidaway, Joost Wafle Co., Local Coffee, Mango’s, Matt’s Fish Camp, Off the Hook, Ropewalk, Summer Salts Beach Grill, Three Blonde Bakers, and Zoca.
We also had many auction item donors, too many, in fact, to list here. Know that your support is most appreciated!
Our thanks also to the over 250 attendees who supported the event as guests, bought raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items. As a representative of the QRCF and on behalf of the dedicated board, my thanks for this extensive effort executed in the people and programs in Sussex County.
Our community efforts this holiday season continues! On January 1, 2020, New Year’s Day, in downtown Bethany Beach, we, along with the Bethany Fenwick-Area Chamber of Commerce, will host the Hair of the Dog Run and Leo Brady Exercise Like the Eskimos Swim. Participants can run or walk the course and may also choose to plunge. Proceeds from the Run and Swim benefit the many individuals, groups, clubs, and organizations that are served by the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation and the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce. We hope that residents and guests will join us kick off the new decade with us. More information can be found at QRCF.org.
