Operating on the concept of the Balimore Colts Corral fan club - a network of Colts fans that spanned nationwide - the new Roost 143 meets at Annabella's Italian restaurant in Lewes each month and already counts nearly three dozen members. Members socialize for potluck dinners and football games in addition to monthly meetings of the non- profit fan club. Organizers ask only that po- tential members be football fans at least 21 years of age who want to take part in a fan-based service organization. Although the new roost didn't take flight until early November, member Emma DiBitonto said they soon got to work, providing Thansgiving dinners to needy families and making donations to the Cape Henlopen Food Bas- ket and West Rehoboth New Beginnings. "We are constantly looking for new members who want to be involved," DiBitonto said. "Football, in general, is our common bond." Already, a large fundraiser to benefit the Delaware Cancer Center is being planned for early May with appearances by Elvis impersonator Bob Lougheed at the American Legion Post 28 near Millsboro, Dickerson said. Each year, Ravens Roost clubs in Maryland raise millions for community organizations to help the less fortunate, he said. Annabella's owner and Ravens Roost member Amy Spray said the group is currently open to corporate sponsorship of their events and also looking to in- crease membership. The newest roost hopes to in their first year of operation, member Tony DiBitonto said. "We are hoping that we can make a big contribution in a short pe- riod of time."
