#340: Winter Fundraisers

Nantucket has some over-the-top fundraisers
 for some truly worthy causes in the summer,
like the Boston Pops at Jetties Beach.
In the winter we're a bit more, subtle.
Snowflakes instead of fireworks.

Paper plates and folding chairs.

Homemade lasagna, Caesar salad, garlic bread.

Desserts to rival those served at the Pops.

And the kids do a good part of the work.
This fundraiser was for the Youth Group to go on
a winter retreat to Camp Berea.
Cost breakdown:
$135 for the camp
$43 boat
$40 bus
$8 bowling 
(an important life skill)
As you can see, Islanders pay extra just to get there.
Next up, the Raffle...
