Ozark Mid-Winter Party


On Tuesday, January 14, people from the Lake of the Ozarks descended on to Ft Myers Beach for Super Dave’s 14th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Mid-Winter Party. The event was held at Shucker’s at the Gulfshore and The Cottage Bar. Once again, many of our Beach businesses donated prizes for our raffle. Proceeds from this raffle go to Fort Myers Beach Elementary School. This year, the raffle raised $1105 for our Beach School.
