The Alumnae Club of Marco Island Inc. wishes to express our sincere appreciation to the following businesses and individuals who contributed to our annual Christmas Gala held December 7th at the Hideaway Beach Club. Because of their kindness we were able to make a difference for more than 130 children and their families. Included in Santa's Helpers this year our shoppers gave out 40 Christmas presents to the 6L Nursery Farm children on December 15th. A special thank you goes to our very own Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
