MV Shellfish Group Spring Chowder Contest
Once again, the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group will be holding its spring fundraiser to gather funds for its scallop, clam and oyster propagation program. As the Chilmark Community Center is undergoing renovations, the event will take place a little later this year. The date is set for Saturday May 9th 2015, 6 to 10 pm at the Chilmark Community Center.
Our Shellfish Extravaganza fundraiser is a fantastic event bringing larger crowds every year. The event features Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish, a large silent auction (over 70 items were donated last year), two “buck a piece” raw bars and a chowder contest. Last year the event was attended by over 250 people.
Proceeds from the event will help the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group further its mission: preserve and expand the Island's traditional shellfisheries and improve and maintain the good surface water quality crucial to a viable shellfish industry.
