Wild Wild West a Success!


The Fort Myers Beach Community FoundationThe Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation held it’s primary fundraiser on Friday night at the DiamondHead resort on Ft. Myers Beach to a sellout crowd. The evening consisted of silent auctions, raffles, line dancing and horse races! Frank Torino served as an amazing DJ! Approximately $12,000 was raised that will go to a variety of local organizations.

The Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation is a charitable foundation dedicated to working cooperatively to improve the quality of life in Fort Myers Beach and surrounding communities. In years past, raised funds supported the Beach Elementary School, Beach Library, Bay Oaks Recreation Center, Beach Historic Society, Keep Lee County Beautiful beach cleanups and Estero Bay cleanups, scholarships for local college students and summer camps, and more.

Dinner Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month, between the months of October through May. Please contact membership chair Judy Lawson (judyjerry@nwi.net) for information about attending a meeting or joining the foundation.
