Mango’s to Host Meals of Hope Happy Hour



Marco Island Meals of Hope will hold its next “Happy Hour for Hope” on Monday, June 26, 2017 from 5 to 7 PM at Mango’s Dockside Bistro at the Esplanade, 760 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island.

Mango’s is graciously hosting this event, and is offering drinks at happy hour prices and a delicious spread of hors d’oeuvres. Bill “Captain Happy Hope” Morris stated, “On the water, great atmosphere and some of the best food on Marco awaits our event. Everyone is invited.” Live entertainment will be provided by Rosetta Stone, as she has done for many years.

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. According to Bill “Captain Hope” Morris, “These events are critical to our success. It costs us over $50,000 to buy food materials for the packaging event. Without support for these happy hours, we will be hardpressed to meet our goal.”

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 yearround raising funds for the packaging event at the 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.
