Fundraising Committee - Primarily focused on fundraising efforts. We can always use more workers in seeking grants from foundations as well as local groups and businesses. We have big ideas for large fundraising events and welcome others! Our team has come up with these event ideas: A return of the Mardi Gras parade, a kayak paddling event, bike race, tour of island homes, casino night, a piano-bar style cooking presentation and a film festival. Come help us raise funds to "raise the roof".
