CAMBRIDGE - Choptank River fishing or cruising enthusiasts who donate to the 2021 “Pleasant Holidays” virtual fundraiser could be in for a treat.
Edgar’s Heating and Air Conditioning has donated the choice of a fishing trip or a sunset cruise on the 33-foot Egg Harbor “Drag N’ Deep.” The trip on the Choptank River will have everything for fishing supplied including bait, while the sunset cruise will add snacks. Drag N’ Deep is anchored at Long Wharf in Cambridge.
This virtual fundraiser is being held instead of the annual Festival of Wreaths at Pleasant Day Medical Adult Day Care since the facility just re-opened in August following many months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Each $25 donation to the fundraiser will be entered in a drawing for a special wreath created by Mike Bramble of Florals Unique Florist in Cambridge, and for every $50 the donor will be entered to win the Choptank River outing.
“We are so appreciative of Guy Edgar’s donation of the cruise and Mike Bramble’s donation of a one-of-a-kind wreath,” said Jackie Vickers, with Pleasant Day. “They have both been enthusiastic supporters of our festival for many years, along with a number of other local businesses.”
Funds raised by Pleasant Holidays will provide home-cooked meals at Christmas and New Year’s Day for program participants, as well as Christmas gifts such as needed clothing and living supplies.
Donations to Pleasant Holidays may be made through the Pleasant Day Medical Adult Day Care website at www.pleasantday.com or sent to Pleasant Day Medical Adult Day Care, 2474 Cambridge Beltway, Cambridge MD 21613. Please be sure to include contact information and raffle choice. The drawing will be held Thursday, Dec. 9.
Sponsors are also being sought and sponsorship levels are: Platinum, $1,000; Gold, $500; Silver, $250; and Bronze, $100. Make checks payable to Pleasant Day Adult Day Care.
