There is power in poultry for Port St. Joe High School athletics.

Willie Ramsey, president of the Shark 100 Club, presented athletic director/football coach John Palmer with a check for over $2,600, bringing to more than $8,000 the donations this year from the club which supports Tiger Sharks athletics.

Ramsey was closing the operational account for the 2013-2014 as the Shark 100 Club prepares to enter its 28th year. Over that time it has donated at last $135,000 to Port St. Joe High School athletics.

“We are definitely grateful for what they do for high school sports, not just football but all sports,” Palmer said.

The largest portion of the club’s contributions this year, as in every year, comes from the annual chicken dinner fundraiser.

This year’s event sold over 900 tickets, collecting nearly $6,000.

The Shark 100 Club picks up the tab for the meal, including chicken, coleslaw, baked beans and beverages.
