Friends of the Environment held their annual series of Reef Balls in Hope Town on February 6 and Marsh Harbour on February 20. The events featured live and silent auctions, gourmet dinner, and music by Suppa Time (Hope Town) and Fire & The Goat Peppers (Marsh Harbour.)
Friends of the Environment reported that this year the events were exceptionally well received. The Reef Ball is FRIENDS major fundraiser with proceeds going towards supporting the groups educational work.
Kristin Williams, FRIENDS Executive Director, said “In 2015 we worked with over 2,600 students and proceeds from the Reef Balls made that possible. We are so grateful to all the patrons, donors, volunteers and community members who made the reef balls such a great success!”
The highlight of the Ball, the live auction, was expertly navigated by Michael Albury who kept the crowd enthusiastic for each of the incredible, donated items.
