The Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation 10th annual Winter Jam fundraiser was held Jan. 20, at the Rusty Rudder Restaurant in Dewey Beach. Sponsored by Jack Lingo Realtor, it was a huge success. Over 480 guests enjoyed food from the best area restaurants such as The Starboard, Starboard Raw, Jimmy’s Grille, Nicola Pizza, Fins Ale House, Matt’s Fish Camp, Fish On, The Point and Crooked Hammock. Guests bid on wonderful auction items from generous local businesses and danced to the tunes of Mike Hines and The Look. The event raised over $70,000 for the foundation.
Winter Jam raises funds for educational programs for students in the Cape Henlopen School District, including teacher grants for unbudgeted classroom projects, STEM initiatives, Cape Carousel after-school enrichment activities, performing arts scholarships and anti-bullying programs.
