QRCF Caribbean Christmas fundraiser set for Dec. 7


The Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF) announced this week that the ninth annual Caribbean Christmas event will be held Saturday, Dec. 7, from 7 to 11 p.m. at Mango’s, located at Garfield Parkway and the boardwalk in downtown Bethany Beach.

The traditionally sold-out fundraising event features tastings from area restaurants, beer, wine and Mangoritas, live music, silent auctions, raffles, dancing and lots of holiday cheer.

“Caribbean Christmas is a festive way to kick off the holidays. It is a great event which embraces the giving spirit of the season with the style of beach living. It is the perfect pairing of party and philanthropy!” said Board Chair Steve Alexander.

Proceeds from Caribbean Christmas benefit local organizations each year. In the QRCF’s 12-year history, more than $90,000 has been contributed to other charities. This year, QRCF has selected Delaware Hospice and Sussex County Habitat for Humanity to benefit from the event. To learn more about the work of the organizations, visit www.delawarehospice.org and www.sussexcountyhabitat.org.

Tickets cost $60 per person, and a sold-out event is expected. The QRCF is a 501(c) organization and the purchase may be tax-deductible. Tickets may be purchased at Beach Liquors—Bethany, Beach Liquors—Fenwick, Bethany Beach Books, Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, Cottage Café, DiFebos, Mango’s and Sedona.

QRCF is currently seeking sponsors, donors, and volunteers. Event sponsorships are available at a variety of levels. Donations of goods or services are also welcome. Individuals and groups are also invited to volunteer before, during and after the event, and the QRCF will aim to accommodate any interest and ability.
