The annual benefit for the Martha’s Vineyard Arena brought approximately 150 people to the Dreamland building in Oak Bluffs, above Martha’s Vineyard Chowder Company, last Friday, Aug. 12. Rick Mello, along with help from funny man Lenny Clarke, auctioned off eight package deals, including the Go Green: rounds of golf at the four Vineyard golf clubs; and the Red Sox Getaway: two tickets to a game, a night’s stay at The Liberty Hotel, and a $100 gift card to The Back Bay Restaurant Group, which includes spots such as Abe & Louie’s and Atlantic Fish.

The Boston Bruins Tickets package sold for a whopping $9,000 to Peter Gillis, and includes two club seat tickets for the October 6 game versus Philadelphia, in which the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Banner will be unveiled.

According to Beth O’Connor, Ice Savours fundraising chairman and arena vice president, more than $20,000 was raised for the rink.
