Mariners Ball Supports People with Special Needs and Veterans
The third annual Kind Mariners Ball, a fundraiser for Freedom Waters Foundation programs for facilitating water recreation for area special needs children and veterans, will take place from 5:30 to 11 p.m., March 11, at the Naples Sailing & Yacht Club. The dinner event will feature a lively On the Emerald Isle theme as a nod to St. Patrick’s Day; a performance by a pipe and drum band, an Irish fiddler and a harpist; live and silent auctions; live music by the High Voltage Band and a keynote address by WINK news anchor Lois Thome.
Freedom Waters Foundation programs include Weller Days yacht outings for children with cancer and their families, and other special needs groups, as well as sailing and fishing programs that include individuals with disabilities, marine activities for veterans and their families, and a variety of nautical-themed special events. Last year’s event raised more than $200,000 from more than 200 guests.
Cost: $300 individuals. Tables of eight and 10 may be prearranged. Location: 896 River Point Dr. For more information, call 239-449-9780, email Info@FreedomWatersFoundation.org or visit FreedomWatersFoundation.org.Edit ModuleShow Tags
