Thanksgiving is right around the corner and this year, no one will go hungry. This weekend, there will be several early community Thanksgiving dinners around town for all, especially those that may not be able to have a meal on Thanksgiving Day. There are also opportunities to help out at these events to make them extra special.
In Broad Channel, on Sunday, November 18, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., all are welcome to a community Thanksgiving Dinner at Christ Presbyterian Church by the Sea (102 Noel Road). Enjoy a dinner featuring turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, string beans, gravy, cranberry sauce, desserts, coffee and tea. Note that this is a paid event ($20 for adults, $10 for children), but it’s for a good cause. Christ Presbyterian has been dealt with some financial hardships and is at risk of closing. In order to raise funds for the church, this event will include a raffle for two tickets to see Aladdin on Broadway on December 2, plus a 50/50. For information on buying raffle tickets ($10), call Donny at 347-703-3600 or Joyce at 718-479-3580. The winner will be picked at the community dinner. Anyone interested in volunteering to help before, after or during the dinner, is encouraged to contact Margaret Howard Wagner on Facebook.
In the spirit of helping Christ Presbyterian, the Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department is also hosting Turkey Karaoke on Saturday, November 17, starting at 8 p.m. at Grassy Point Bar (18-02 Cross Bay Blvd.). A $10 cover goes toward helping the church and gets you a night of karaoke, drink specials and a chance to enter a raffle to win Thanksgiving dinner supplies for 10 people.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
