MERR FinRaiser swims with support
The Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute held its 9th Annual FinRaiser Nov. 17 at the Lewes Yacht Club. This annual event is the most important fundraiser for MERRa to cover operating costs throughout the year. According to MERR Executive Director Suzanne Thurman, the sold-out event “Is very telling of the community support.” The event featured a live and silent auction plus heavy hors d'ouvres and a table full of deserts. Shown at the event are (l-r) MERR Board Secretary Donna Ferragut, MERR Board President Rob Rector and MERR Executive Director Suzanne Thurman.
