We have connected two local non-profits that focus on support to children, namely Valerie’s House and Dream Chasers and Dream Makers for girls. As a result, on October 16th
at the Gulf Theater at the Military Heritage Museum, we have created an amazing fundraiser that will directly benefits equally both of these groups. Valerie’s House is a non-profit mentoring group that offers free grievance support to children who have recently lost family members. I was blown away to hear there were over 4000+kids in Charlotte County alone who would benefit from their services, if they were all to apply today! Dream Chasers and Dream Makers is a non-profit entity, directly focused on creating a path for girls of all ages and ethnicities to make the very best choices in their lives to reach their full potential. The benefit that we have created will commence at 7pm, featuring the music of the Suncoast Swing Band along with our Chamber superstar Zarita Mattox, who we guarantee will have your dancing in the aisles. The Punta Gorda Calendar Girls will also be strutting their stuff to help raise funds! Many surprises are planned, but our main goal will be to sell the theater out in record time. Tickets are $45 and available under the Gulf Theater tab of www.militaryheritagemuseum.org
where you can select your preferred seat. The event also will have the opportunity for you to bid on incredible prizes and baskets, donated to help the causes we are supporting that night. If you have not yet heard Zarita, you are in for a treat! Please come along and join the party. Bring your dancing shoes!!
