Oyster benefit a success

To the Editor,
I wanted to let you know that the Sun Farm Oyster fundraiser raised $1,200 in a little over two hours last Tuesday for Block Island non-profits. That’s about 2,800 oysters! The Block Island Rescue Squad used an innovative light display to receive the $50 first prize bonus for the most creative donation jar. I know also that The Block Island Times alerted its readers several times to this event, helping get the word out, and we could not have done this without Old Island Pub hosting the benefit.
We would not have raised this amount without the generosity of so many people who donated in excess of our suggested donation amount. Good job and thank you
to everyone who participated. See you next year. Bon appetit!
