Manateeum Fundraiser Gala
March 23 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
If you love our manatees and all of the Cape Coral wildlife, please consider attending this wonderful fundraiser!
The Manateeum Fundraiser Gala will be held on Friday, March 23 from 6:00-10:00 p.m. in the Ballroom of the Cape Coral Yacht Club (5819 Driftwood Pkwy). The goal is begin raising sufficient funds to build an environmental education center (aka “Manateeum”) at Sirenia Vista Park.
The Gala will feature an elegant evening of gourmet food, live music, cash bar and silent auction – all for a great cause! The cost is $99 per individual ticket or $1,200 for a VIP/Corporate table. This event is black-tie optional with valet parking for guests’ convenience.
Tickets may be purchased, and donations can be made online at http://www.manateeumfundraiser.com. Tickets may also be purchased in person at Rotary Park Environmental Center located at 5505 Rose Garden Road during regular business hours.
And, if you haven’t been to Sirenia Vista Park lately, be sure to check it out! Many wonderful changes have been made over the past couple of years including the addition of manatee viewing areas, paved walking paths, a kayak launch area, an osprey nest and purple martin houses. In addition, new benches, a Free Little Library and a butterfly garden are now onsite for the enjoyment of park visitors.
When sufficient funds are raised, the addition of a “Manateeum” will help to promote sustainable growth and wildlife protection through education offering informative displays plus environmental programs and classes, with the potential for marine research facilities on site.
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to make an in-kind donation for the silent auction and/or have additional questions, you may call Rotary Park at 239-549-4606 or visit the event website at http://www.manateeumfundraiser.com.
