Thank you to everyone who has generously donated towards the "Harkey Challenge" to date. We are forever grateful!

Scroll down and mark your calendars. There is something for everyone - We'll see you at the House real soon! Your Island Gathering Place since 1927.

Thank you to everyone who supported and attended our 97th Anniversary Gala this past Tuesday, January 23rd!

Together we celebrated “The Historic Island Gathering Place” and we wish to thank our extraordinary Sponsors, Attendees & Benefactors.

A very special thank you to our wonderful Board of Directors, Staff, and Co-Auctioneers Bill Harkey and Tommy Williams, and all of our dedicated Volunteers—all of whom made this event a huge success!

We are extra grateful for the support from our friends, Laurie & Bill Harkey, who matched all Live Auction and Lots of Love donations raised during the event. Thank you so much Laurie and Bill!!
