The annual Oyster Roast to benefit the Navy Seal Foundation that was held November 3 at the Island House netted a record amount this year. $111,075.28 was the net profit and will be donated to the Foundation. Island house owner Blake Johnson thanked everyone who participated in the event.

He said “seven years ago when we raised just over $12,000, I would have never have guessed we could raise six figures for this event. Boy did I underestimate the Eastern Shore!”

The event has become so popular that tickets are often sold out within a day of going on sale.
