R. Murphy Knives is honored to be a sponsor of Island Creek Oyster Foundation - Friends for Haiti Benefit.
All proceeds from this event go to the Caribbean Harvest Foundation's Tilapia Fish Farming Program. This Foundation is committed to providing sustainable aquaculture in one of the most impoverished places in the world.
Island Creek Oysters Foundation (ICOF) will provide 40 families per year with Tilapia Fish Farming Kits and related supplies. The annual income of the 40 families who receive ICOF Tilapia Fish Farming kits, can rise from an average of $300 per year to nearly $3,000 per year. These kits and related supplies also provide a year-round source of protein for their families and a reliable income.
ICOF has a goal to donate a minimum $100,000 to Caribbean Harvest from this year's event.
