The Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF) is seeking auction items for the 6th Annual Caribbean Christmas.

The Caribbean Christmas will be held Saturday, Dec. 4 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Mango’s.  Mango’s is located at Garfield Parkway and the boardwalk in downtown Bethany Beach.  .
 
From gift certificates to artwork to island getaway trips, there are a number of options for donating to the silent auction. Both individuals and businesses are welcome to donate. With nearly 500 attendees at last year’s event, the auction offers excellent exposure for a product or service while showing support for important programs that benefit the community. “The silent auction is a popular part of the Caribbean Christmas experience. Donating an item for the event is an opportunity to show your investment in our community,” said event chair and QRCF board member Brent Poffenberger.
 
Tickets for the event are $60.  QRCF is a 501(c)(3) organization and your purchase may be tax-deductible.  Tickets are currently available for purchase at Mangos, The Cottage Café, Beach Liquors, Bethany Beach Books, The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber Office, online at www.qrcf.org, or by calling Mary Franz at (302) 537-QRCF.  Tickets are limited and in high demand, this event is always a sell-out so act now.
 
The Caribbean Christmas will feature a sample tasting from area restaurants, beer, wine, and Mangoritas, live music, silent auctions, dancing and lots of holiday cheer. QRCF would like to thank our generous sponsors that to date have committed their services, Beach Liquors, Bethany Florist, Coastal Point, Cottage Café Restaurant & Pub, Creative Resource Group, Mango’s, and The Delaware Wave.”
 
Proceeds from this year’s Caribbean Christmas will be used to directly benefit residents in our local QRCF community served by The Wellness Community - Delaware, Camp Barnes, The William O Murray Scholarship Fund and QRCF’s community grant and college scholarship programs.
