Eating in a good cause


To the Editor:

On Wednesday, April 7, Martha’s Vineyard Youth Hockey (MVYH) families and players rallied their supporters to join in a wonderfully fun and simple fundraising event at Sharky’s Cantina. All we had to do was eat dinner at Sharky’s in Edgartown. Then, JB donated 30 percent of the food proceeds of the evening to MVYH. This was, by far, the easiest fundraising event I have helped organize. All I did was book the event, advertise it and eat. I want to send a huge, heartfelt thank you to JB and the staff at Sharky’s Cantina for providing MVYH (and other nonprofit groups) the opportunity to come together over good food in a fun setting to raise easy money for the(ir) cause(s). And, many thanks, too, to all the people that dined at Sharky’s that night for supporting MVYH. I’m already looking forward to our next Sharky’s fundraiser in the fall.
