Five hundred pounds of strawberries. What does that even look like?
At First Congregational Church in West Tisbury, about 50 volunteers cut and prepared all 500 pounds of fresh strawberries for the 23rd annual Strawberry Festival.
Drawing more than a thousand visitors, the fundraiser offered a wide selection of strawberry snacks.
This first church-wide fundraiser of the season raised more than $5,000.
In the video, volunteers and visitors tell us why they enjoy this event every year.
