A Happy Hour for a Cause

Marco Island Meals of Hope’s May “Happy Hour for Hope” will be held on Monday, May 15, 2017 from 5 to 7 PM at the Old Marco Pub and Restaurant, 1105 Bald Eagle Drive, Marco Island.

Susan and Tom Ackerson are hosting this event, offering drinks at happy hour prices and a delicious spread of hors d’oeuvres. Bill “Captain Happy Hope” Morris stated, “Old Marco Pub and Restaurant always provides great food and a welcome atmosphere. Susan already takes care of Korks for Kids and she and her husband Tom just keep on giving. They are terrific.”

Live entertainment will be provided by guitarist JoeRey and accompanied by Heidi Berge.

Happy Hours for Hope are fundraisers for Marco Island’s Meals of Hope. The $10 admission fee helps the organization buy food for its packaging event in November.

Marco Meals of Hope is a joint effort of Kiwanis, Noontime Rotary and Sunrise Rotary Clubs. It is a hands-on approach to combating hunger in our community. Volunteers work year round raising funds for its packaging event at Marco Island Charter Middle School. Last year, volunteers packed over 250,000 meals for distribution through the Meals of Hope distribution network. Organizers hope to do equal that number at the packaging event on November 18, 2017.
