Fundraiser for the saltwater pump house roof

This fudge replica of the Sandy Beach pump house, made and donated by the Alaskan Fudge Co., will be auctioned Tuesday to raise money to pay the cost of the new roof. The auction, which closes at 8 p.m., is part of a greater fundraiser at the Island Pub.

The iconic Sandy Beach pump house has its new roof, but more funds are needed to pay the bill. The Treadwell Society is holding a fundraiser on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Island Pub in Douglas. Twenty percent of all food and drink sales from 11:30 a.m. to midnight will go toward the Pump House restoration.

You can also view a slide show of the restoration and bid on a chocolate fudge replica of the Pump House provided by the Alaskan Fudge Company, available through silent auction and awarded at 8 p.m. Additional tax-deductible donations are welcome.
