OCEAN CITY — During a two-hour open house at the Ocean City Fishing Club on Aug. 3, 1,070 visitors donated $552 and 102 pounds of food for the Ocean City Community Food Cupboard.
Club members unlocked the gate to their historic pier at 14th Street and the Boardwalk and welcomed guests for a tour and demonstrations of surfcasting.
Visitors were encouraged to bring nonperishable food or make cash donations for needy citizens.
The event, part of the city’s Family Night on the Boardwalk, was the second one of the 2017 summer season. No more are scheduled this year.
