The event will be held on Friday, May 15, 2020, from 6 PM to 9 PM, on the docks at Sunset Grille, located in West Ocean City. (rain date, May 29th). 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 at the door includes a light fare buffet, a drink ticket, live entertainment, raffles, and a chance to win a free fishing charter on Dale Lisi’s charter fishing excursion boat, Foolish Pleasures, with a value of approximately $1800. This boat was featured on the television show, “Wicked Tuna”, Outer Banks.

Current sponsors include: Foolish Pleasures, The Duckaneer Pirate Ship, Sunset Grille, Keller Williams with Captain Joel Feldman and Poole Contracting with Captain Corey Leggour.
This year’s 2 Co-Captains, Corey Leggour and Joel Feldman are on the prowl for individuals who will support the fundraiser by either becoming a Pirate or by financially supporting a specific Pirate or Piratees. Pirates are asked to raise at least $500, amongst their friends, co-workers and within their community and come to the party dressed as a pirate. Whole businesses or ‘Captain Ships’ are encouraged to reach a goal of raising $1000. Friends, family, and colleagues can help Pirates and Captains meet their financial goals by donating to “their” specific pirate.
