Overfalls Sundowner Aug. 21 to benefit DRBLF
For the final Sundowner of the 2014 season, scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Lightship Overfalls, the Overfalls Foundation is hosting friends from the Delaware River and Bay Lighthouse Foundation. Proceeds from the evening will go to help the DRBLF rebuild their docks so they can move forward in their mission to preserve and display the area's two local lighthouse landmarks. Hurricane Sandy completely destroyed the docks attached to these two lighthouses, making it impossible to do restoration work or take visitors onto the sites. Tickets are $15 for anyone over 14 and include delicious house-smoked pulled pork barbecue sandwich or vegetarian wrap, pickles and chips, triple chocolate brownies and other assorted treats, wine, beer and nonalcoholic beverages. The evening will feature island steel drum music by Dave and Arline. Tickets may be purchased in advance from the Ship Store or by calling Sue at 302-593-7962. Tickets will also be available at the door.
