On June 24th Yachtstock held their 19th Annual Outdoor Musical Festival that the community has come to love and support every year. The organization has been helping families with children that have chronic to terminal illnesses, in addition to donating funds to Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. The people that are involved in the organization do all of this out of the kindness of their hearts and on a complete voluntary basis. They all hold jobs in other sectors and except no compensation from funds raised. From the founder to the ticket takers, to the marketing director, and event the 30 plus band that entertain. It is an amazing day for the entire family to come out and enjoy. I started as a patron and then became a volunteer 9 years ago and have since joined the board. It has been an amazing experience to be a part of something that has grown over the years and has been able to help so many families. I am proud to be part of Yachtstock.
