Carmines family thankful for Seafood Festival turnout

On behalf of the David M. Carmines Foundation, we would like to extend our appreciation to all those who attended and participated in the sixth annual Hilton Head Seafood Festival.

The events were very successful thanks to our contributing sponsors, the staff of all the participating restaurants, vendors and to all of you who donated to our silent auction.

We want to thank our volunteers who provided many hours of service to the festival. We would also like to thank TD Bank and Pat Carey of Carey & Company, CPA, who have supported the foundation at many levels.

The money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society, the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center and the Island Recreation Association's scholarship fund. This funding will help many families throughout our community. Once again, thank you to everyone who made this event so successful.

Don't forget about the annual tennis tournament, which will be held Nov. 16-18 at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center. We'll see you then.
