    Worcester Youth & Family 11th Annual Pirate Party
     
    Berlin, Maryland – Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services will host their 11th Annual Pirate Party fundraiser to benefit the children of Worcester County. The event will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019, from 6 PM to 9 PM, at Sunset Grille in West Ocean City, (with a rain date of May 31). Attendees are encouraged to join in the fun by coming dressed in their best pirate garb. (Pirate attire is not required to attend.) This annual fundraiser is always a big hit with locals since it’s great fun and represents the kick-off party of the summer. A $49 donation includes a light fare buffet, a drink ticket, live entertainment, raffles, and a silent auction. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the event or in advance at the Worcester Youth and Family office, 124 North Main Street, Berlin, MD 21811.
     
    This is Worcester Youth & Family’s (WYF) most popular annual event and all monies raised will support the organization’s youth programs. These programs have a huge impact on the lives of Worcester County’s most vulnerable residents, engaging them in healthy, structured, social activities and working with them in therapeutic environments to improve their lives. Donations support youth enrichment programs and WYF’s CASA program that advocates for neglected and abused children in the child welfare system.
     
    Local businesses and individuals generously support this annual event. Business sponsors are still being sought and currently include: Atlantic Physical Therapy, Austin Purnell, Ayers Creek Adventures, Beach House CrossFit, Bergey & Company, Castle in the Sand, Cards Technology, Church Mouse, CrossFit Ocean City, D3, Duckaneer, Dough Roller, Harborside Bar & Grill, IV Solutions, Kendall Furniture, NFP Insurance, Sunset Grille, and Taylor Bank.
     
    Individuals can support the fundraiser by becoming a Pirate or by financially supporting a specific Pirate.  Pirates are asked to raise at least $500 and come to the party dressed as a pirate.  Friends, family and colleagues can help pirates meet their financial goals by visiting the WYF website at www.gowoyo.org/donate and donating to “their” specific pirate.  Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor or a Pirate should contact Steve Taylor at: staylor@gowoyo.org or (410) 641-4598.
