Thank you! "Madmen" Chicken Alley Thrift Shop (MVCS) Benefit Party a Success!

Martha’s Vineyard Community Services’ Chicken Alley Thrift Shop would like to thank the Troy Neuenburg and the Sand Bar in Oak Bluffs, DJ Ricky Prime and Dukes County Love Affair (DCLA) for the very successful and fabulous good time had by all at the “Madmen” party to benefit MVCS last Friday night!

Thank you as well to the wonderful Sandbar staff and our amazing community who came dressed up as their favorite characters from the TV series, “Madmen!” With musical performances by DCLA and DJ Ricky Prime, and a photo area set up to capture the fun throughout the night—we celebrated the beginning of the summer season with friends AND raised crucial funds for Martha’s Vineyard Community Services in true "Madmen" style!
