The 100 in its name could designate the thousands of dollars the Shark 100 Club has contributed to support athletic programs at Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School.

Club president Willie Ramsey presented high school athletic director Chuck Gannon with a check for $7,000 last week, representing in part the proceeds of the highly-successful annual chicken dinner fundraiser and closing the books on another successful year for the Shark 100 Club.

As it prepares for its 27th year, the club has donated to date nearly $125,000 since 1986 to Tiger Shark athletics.

“They have had a tremendous impact,” Gannon said. “It’s very helpful. It is a good collaboration, people working together for the benefit of the kids.

“We appreciate everything the Shark 100 Club does for us.”

The annual chicken dinner fundraiser, which alone raised over $3,000, is a testament to that collaboration.

The Shark 100 Club picks up the tab for the components of the meal, chicken, coleslaw, baked beans and beverages and a cooking team of club members, led by School Board member John Wright, do most of the cooking.
