Help Us Help The Community Tomorrow at 11AM
Ed Ryan January 8, 2021 0
The Putt & Pub Crawl, originally scheduled for this coming Saturday, may have been canceled, but the community still needs our help. The annual event, sponsored by the Fort Myers Beach Woman’s Club, is a HUGE fundraiser for so many local charitable organizations in our community. We’re doing our part to help. Here are all the details….
Every year this event raises close to $10,000 for the organizations (listed below) and the 2021 crawl was going to be even bigger with the addition of a corporate sponsor.
Here’s what we’re doing to help….and how you can help as well.
On Saturday, January 16th, when the Putt & Pub Crawl was planned to take place, let’s all meet at hole #1 (Nervous Nellie’s ) for our own “shot” gun start. We’ll go to every location (see the course below), spend money, and pass the hat — so these local organizations do not miss out on the money they desperately need to help them survive, especially during a year so many fundraising events are canceled.
At each hole, we will pass the collection plate and we will stuff it full of money. At hole #9, we will count it all up and make our donation.
If you cannot make the event, a special PayPal account has been set up by The Woman’s Club (https://www.paypal.com/donate…) where you can take action NOW and make a donation of any amount, at any time, between now and the 16th.
So far, after posting our story on Facebook, we’ve raised $1,375 through the PayPal link for these gret organizations.
If we work together we can surpass the $10,000 raised before we hit the course. We’ll post a running update of the total amount raised here on our page every morning.
Here’s the course, the drink specials and prizes we’ll be giving away. You can join us at any time along the way…
