Our customers look forward to this party every year,” Said Sarah Dickinson, the Media & Events Director at 16 Mile.  “We also felt strongly that the party should benefit local organizations, so this year we are donating all of the proceeds to the Sussex SPCA Georgetown Chapter and the Food Bank of Delaware.”
