Join us for our annual fundraiser! Funds raised go to the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund. 
​It's the first social event of the holidays, and there are some new vendors!  

The Marla Ceely Lamb Fund is a special fund which helps defray the costs of transportation and lodging for patients who must travel off-island for cancer treatment. Hundreds of patients suffering from cancer have been helped over the years, thanks to the fundraising efforts of Marla’s family and friends and the generosity of the Nantucket community.
