The United Way of Martin County Tikis on the Terrace to raise money for hunger relief
Pack your hula skirt, it’s time for the second annual United Way of Martin County Tikis on the Terrace, presented by Bank of America.
Festivities begin at 6 p.m. May 17 at the Mansion at Tuckahoe with music, tropical-inspired food, unlimited libations and traditional Polynesian entertainment. Tickets are $75 before April 30 and $100 after and can be purchased online at UnitedWayMartin.org/Tiki.
Last year more than 200 guests attended the inaugural Tikis on the Terrace and raised $17,000 to help local students read on level by third grade. This year, the event will raise critical funds for Martin County’s hunger relief initiatives.
According to recent statistics, nearly 20,000 people in Martin County are faced by the threat of hunger and nearly 20 percent of Martin County children lack consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.
