The Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation's ninth annual Caribbean Christmas will be held from 7 to 11 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7, at Mango's on Garfield Parkway and the boardwalk in downtown Bethany Beach.
This traditionally sold-out fundraising event features tastings from favorite 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. This year, QRCF has selected Delaware Hospice and Sussex County Habitat for Humanity. To learn more about the work of these worthy organizations, visit www.delawarehospice.org/ and www.sussexcountyhabitat.org.
Tickets are $60 per person and are highly sought-after. QRCF is a 501(c) organization, and the purchase may be tax-deductible. Tickets may be purchased at Beach Liquors in Bethany and Fenwick, Bethany Beach Books, Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, Cottage Café, DiFebo's, Mango’s, and Sedona.
