Bard Production’s Joe Catalano delivered a $700 check to the Food Pantry on October 22, 2015. The dollars were collected at the Third Pirate Invasion this past September in Cedar Key. In addition to the $700, the Pirates put collection boxes in and around their weekend events into which were deposited canned foods which amounted to what Catalano reports to be 300 pounds of food.
Catalano further reported that from the Second Cedar Key Pirate Invasion in September 2014, the organization delivered a $500 check to the Pantry and collected nearly half of the canned goods that they collected in 2015. “It’s going to get bigger every year,” said Catalano.
The Cedar Key Food Pantry’s Donna Beach and Jeri Treat happily accepted the check on behalf of the Pantry and thanked Catalano for his work and delivery.
