Christmas Hamper Project

This past year was a stellar one for our Christmas Hamper fundraiser. Over the course of seventeen weeks, Twillingate – New World Island Dinner Theatre and Waterside Fish Market, with the help of several community volunteers, sold $50,000 in fifty-fifty tickets and collected almost $15,000 in raw donations, making 2019 the most successful year yet for the hamper project.  On September 22, following the end of our final show for the season, the winning ticket was drawn. Arlene Elliott of Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, won the $25,000 and dropped by some weeks later to collect her check. In mid December, a number of staff and community volunteers gathered at the theatre to assemble and deliver some 160+ hampers to homes throughout the region. On behalf of all of us at Twillingate – New World Island Dinner Theatre and Waterside Fish Market, we thank those who purchased tickets, gave donations, sold tickets, collected food items, and volunteered their time to fill and deliver hampers again this year.
