Help for the Rod & Reel Pier Staff captured in T-shirts “fiery humor”!

Rod & Reel

J & J Graphics has taken the menu of the closed-by-fire Rod & Reel Pier restaurant and added a twist of blackened humor to it to create 100 of what could be collectible shirts, but it’s all for a good cause! All the money raised will go to All Island Denominations, the six-church Island organization which has committed to helping the 30 temporarily out of work employees of the Rod & Reel Pier, which had a fire in the kitchen.

The shirt also has the Rod & Reel logo and the phrase: “Established in 1947. Got smoked 2013.”

J & J Graphics donated the 100 shirts. The shirts cost $20 and right now can be purchased just at J&J Graphics, 9701 Gulf Dr., Anna Maria beginning 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday. All sales need to be in cash or check made out to All Island Denominations.

The shirts will be sky blue Gildan Ultra cotton tees with a back print and a small left chest print.For an additional $5 donation, other color shirts can be ordered and printed within four days.
