Berlin, Md – Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services will host their 9th Annual Pirate Party fundraiser to benefit the children of Worcester County. The event will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Sunset Grille in West Ocean City (with a rain date of June 2).
Attendees are encouraged to join in the fun by coming dressed in their best pirate garb. A huge hit amongst locals, year-after-year, the event will serve as a “kick-off” of summer party to benefit local children and families.
New this year, the event will feature two tiers of admission: a $20 donation at the door includes a light fare buffet, happy hour drink prices, live entertainment, raffles, and an auction; a $49 donation adds two drinks, a t-shirt, and V.I.P. access to special areas of the event with butlered food service, including service aboard the Duckaneer Pirate Ship, docked at Sunset Grille.
This is WYFCS’s most popular annual event and all monies raised will support WYFCS’ youth programs. These programs have a huge impact on the lives of Worcester County’s most vulnerable residents, engaging them in healthy, structured, social activities and working with them in therapeutic environments to improve their lives.
The event is co-chaired by “Captain” Joe Kendall of Kendall Furniture and “Captain” Buddy Trala of Sunset Grille. Event sponsors include Sunset Grille, Kendall Furniture, Insurance Management Group, D3 Corp, CrossFit Ocean City, Castle in the Sand Hotel, Bergey & Company, P.A., Duckaneer Pirate Ship, and Ayers Creek Adventures.
