Fundraising items making waves for this year’s MERR Fin-raiser Nov. 23Cruises, artwork, wooden dory among auction items
Now making waves in its ninth year, the annual MERR Institute Fin-raiser is ready to make a splash Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Lewes Yacht Club.
A number of items will be available that will make excellent holiday gifts, with proceeds all going to a great local cause. Sailboat cruises with catered lunches, a wooden dory built by the Lighthouse Overfalls crew, artwork, catered dinners, packages and gift certificates to many local stores and restaurants will all be offered.
The live auction is just one highlight of the event, which will also be marked by live music from local band 33 1/3, as well as heavy hors d'oeuvres and Teller wines served by local celebrity bartenders.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m., and a few tickets are still available for $35 at the door. All are invited to attend this evening of music, food and fun to benefit the nonprofit Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute and the numerous marine mammals and turtles it helps rescue every year. Call 302-228-5029 or go to merrinstitute.org for more information.
