Each year, our Club helps to provide over $65,000 to local charities through our Oyster Roast, Fish Fry, Barbecue, individual momentary contributions from our members, and the five inshore fishing tournaments that take place at our facility annually.
Our Charities Coordinator, CJ Swindull, has reported that our “Angel Tree” program to provide gifts for all 22 boys at SAYS was a success. 15 of our member families bought the gifts and 7 gave cash donations for us to go shopping. CJ wants to thank Amy Gardner for helping him with the shopping. Additionally, we were able to give cash donations of $500 from the Club and $200 from individual members, for a total of $3000 to SAYS at Christmas. There was about $100 left which will be used to provide a dinner for the boys and staff at SAYS in the near future. CJ wants to thank all those who helped with this project for their support. Once again, the Club also gave $250 to The Empty Stocking Fund last year.
