This was the first time Seawolf has held this particular fundraiser, and the proceeds go to benefit the foster children in our local community. The plan is to continue hosting this event so long as the community continues to support it. The main goal is always to raise money to benefit the local foster families and foster children.

When asked, Timothy Brinegar had this to say, “Pirates are greedy, no matter what we do we are always greedy, so the more we could have in the room would be wonderful. You know it’s coming along, we are trying to get the community involved, trying to do these events, so if we can get that forward momentum to get them involved, that’s what it’s about. So we take on these challenges and it’s interesting to set these up. They take time, work, a lot of effort from the crew, and all the volunteers that we have, so we’re glad to have the folks here and we’ll try and continue, yes this is kind of one our events. We are trying to focus on events that grow the greatest. We want to spend a lot of time with the kids, and take what you guys invest in these types of events, put it to us to go out and do the things that we need to do and that is work with the kids. So the stronger that these can be, the easier it is for us to pull it together and do a lot more for the kids, if that makes sense.”

Cayti Brinegar, had this to add, “So, you know the saying, ‘It takes a village’, well in this case it takes a crew. Right, a crew of pirates that can come together and just rally the community to support these children. Cause these are our children, like they are part of our family, you know. They are in our community, and if everybody just took a little bit of responsibility in that, these children could still be children and enjoy their lives in the midst of their trauma and things that are going on, it is not their fault at all. They can still enjoy and be happy and have a great childhood. We took the money from the support we got all last year, and we do weekly food distribution, we did a great Easter distribution, we egged a whole bunch of kids yards with Easter eggs filled with candy, we delivered 50 something Easter baskets, we have gone on and done events at the beach, were they all got kites and they sailed, sailing the stars we called it were they got kites and dinner and smores by the fire. So we are doing a lot of great things for the kids and these families, and the appreciation is bountiful from the families, when we are able to just touch the families and the children’s lives. So we are looking forward to doing a lot more for them coming up in the future. And this is just one more step in the right direction and we appreciate all the community support we have had, and we look forward to more.”
