Many gathered at the Chilmark Community Center on Saturday night, April 12, to raise money for the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group, a nonprofit organization that seeks to preserve and expand the Island’s shellfisheries.
During the first part of the evening, guests tasted chowders prepared by Island chefs and restaurants, and then voted for their favorites. Harbor View Hotel executive chef Nathan Gould and pastry chef Nikolas Mastalerz won first prize for their gluten-free Smokey Vineyard Quahog Chowder.
Guests then showed their stuff on the dance floor, thanks to Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish.
