The Montauk Chamber of Commerce is delighted with the results of their 2010 fundraising efforts and events. The St. Patrick's Day Chowder and Soup Sale allowed the Chamber to donate money to the Montauk Friends of Erin. The Fine Arts Festival held on Memorial Day weekend drew crowds viewing artistic displays, and was rated 65th in the Art Fair Source Book. The Harbor Festival amused visitors in June.
Starting in July and running through August the Chamber sponsored "Concerts on the Green." A variety of local bands entertained the community for two hours. "Stars Over Montauk" lit up the sky with the amazing Grucci fireworks on July 4th. The Montauk Lighthouse was the destination for hundreds of visitors for the Night at the Light in July.
A new event was introduced last year, the Montauk Farmers Market. The Market was held every Thursday morning throughout the summer and into October. All fees for the market were designated to go to the Montauk Food Pantry. Fall brought thousands to the Montauk Fall Festival and Chowder Contest on Columbus Day Weekend.
This year's Annual End of the Season Gala held in November honored Dr. Dan Vasti, as "Person of the Year." Also in November, the Chamber presented a "Star Bright Montauk Weekend." This fun filled weekend featured the 3rd Annual Lighting of the Lighthouse.
These events allowed the Chamber to further support the community through the Montauk Chamber Frank A. Capozzola Scholarship Fund, and to make donations to the Friends of Erin St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Montauk Lighthouse Committee, the Montauk Food Pantry, Sponsor a Christmas Family, Boy Scouts, and the Montauk Chamber of Commerce Fireworks Fund.
