Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

We recently held our seventh annual evening of music on the Lagoon at our home in Oak Bluffs. In the past the proceeds from donations from these musical evenings have benefitted the Lagoon Pond Association, the Steeple Fund Capital Campaign of the Federated Church, and the ongoing music ministry/organ program at the Federated Church.

This year, our musical guests were the Long Point 5. Their choice of charity was Hospice of Martha’s Vineyard, and we were delighted to offer people the option of donating to one or both of these charities. And donate they did, with an amazing amount of money being raised for both organizations!

We would like to thank the paper for mention of our event in the town columns and calendar section.

Additionally, we would like to thank the Long Point 5 for the donation of their fantastic music. They literally set the tone for an old-fashioned musical soiree, while uplifting very worthy organizations.

The evening was extremely successful, thanks to much support from many directions.

Our thanks to all.
