What is the mission of the Friends of Bradstock & is Bradstock “for profit”?

• Our mission is simple, to have a good time with our friends of Bradstock
• We are a not-for profit (501c3) organization, fully run by volunteers
• Other than expenses needed to run the events, all proceeds go to local charities. Thanks to the generosity of the many friends of Bradstock, in the past twenty-three years we have donated well over $250,000 this includes $100,000 to Camp-Pa-Qua-Tuck. Other beneficiaries include the Long Island Maritime Museum, Friends of Connetquot River State Park, the Sayville Kiwanis Club, G.R.O.W., WUSB, They Often Cry Out, the Unbroken Chain Foundation, the Sayville Village Improvement Society, the Bayport and West Sayville Civic Associations and the Peconic Baykeeper And let’s not forget our friends from the U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association, who man and woman the grills to keep us in grub over the weekend. The profits from the sale of the food goes to fund their own charitable cause – and they kick in a contribution to Bradstock as well. And over these many years, the Bradstock organization has donated a mountain of food and ongoing monetary contributions to Island Harvest to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We are confident that the Circle of Chiefsmoves forward in a manner befitting the labor that we expend. May the circle be unbroken.
