Message from Worthy President Kirk Pourmanafzadeh:

Aloha Ladies and Gentlemen,

To everyone who came out to support FISH at burger nite, Mahalo for your support. We didn’t break the record, but 50 is an Awesome showing to help support my charity. A special thanks to my amazing crew, Amie, Stephanie, Bill and Darrell. I couldn’t have done it without their support. Keep an eye out for the next FISH fundraiser starting very soon. The Marineers have kindly donated 4 tickets in a fabulous section that will be raffling off. Tickets will be available behind the bar shortly.
