Sharky's Donates over $18,000 to local organization through Bay Helping Bay Fundraiser

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Sharky's restaurant in Panama City Beach is giving back the community. Wednesday afternoon, one local organization received a very generous donation. 

Through their Bay helping Bay fundraiser, Sharky's dedicated an entire day of sales and profits to a local organization of their choice. In January, the chosen recipient was the Saint Andrews community medical center. Bay helping Bay started a few years ago but this was the most successful one yet raising over $18,000. 

Wednesday afternoon the check was presented to officials with the medical center, they say they had no idea how much was raised until they saw the check. 

"We had no idea. We were hoping maybe 2 or 3,000 dollars but to get $18,455.77, that's fantastic. We're going to use this money to provide medications and medical supplies to our patients here in Bay County," said Chairman St. Andrew's Community Medical Center, Delbert Summey. 

The managers at Sharky's says they hope to host another Bay helping Bay event in about three weeks, no date is set in stone and no recipient has been chosen yet.
