Help take our wounded veterans fishing

Hi all,

A group I do a lot of volunteer work for, Project Healing Waters, is bringing 50 people, including wounded and disabled vets, volunteers and military, to South Seas Island Resort this October.


Local captains and guides are donating their time to take these heroes fishing for two days. The event is called Fish With A Hero. You may have heard about it on the local news.

To raise money, a few local businesses and organizations are having a fundraiser this Saturday night at Duffy’s in Cape Coral. The restaurant is donating a portion of food and drink tabs, and there will be silent auctions, raffle tickets for a Hobie Mirage kayak, and sales of event shirts as well. Oh, and a benefit performance by local country band The Ben Allen Band.

Please come on out and help us with this worthy cause. Festivities start at 6, the Band starts at 7.

If you PM me, I will send you a flyer with more details.

And, thank you in advance for helping Project Healing Waters help our wounded heroes!:wink

    ljk, pm me an address for a donation to your project. Not sure if I will be in FL by that date, will let you know if I can participate as soon as travel plans get firmed up. Bill

    I won't be able to attend but I'd be honored to make buddies with a couple wounded vets to take them fishing. Not to be age-prejudice but I'd prefer vets 50 years or younger to take offshore. Let me know how I can participate outside of this event.
