To the Editor:

On behalf of the Rise Vineyard Performing Arts Dance Company, I thank everyone who helped make our “Dine To Donate” event at Sharky’s a huge success.

To JB, Meaghan, and the staff at Sharky’s, we are so grateful to you for providing this generous service to us and the Island community.

To the businesses and people who donated items and services, we are blessed to have your support. You helped us raise more than $1,000 with our silent auction and raffle.

We are so excited to bring our talented dancers to compete in Brockton this winter and in Providence next spring.

Thank you so much for your kindness. We couldn’t do it without you.
