Shark Attack Sounds Yields $8K Donation to Montauk Playhouse
The Montauk Playhouse Community Center received a donation of $8,000 as part of the Shark Attack Sounds party last month.
The Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina donated the money, twice as much as much as originally promised to the organization, the yacht club said in a statement.
“Approximately $3,500 was originally committed to the Montauk Playhouse, as a result of the annual Shark Attack Sounds party held July 5, 2013,” Lloyd Van Horn, the general manager, said. “We decided that we were able to double the donation amount in order to benefit the Montauk community further.”
