BTT February fundraising continues

February 7th, 2011| No Comments

The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust’s February fundraising drive continues apace. Following Saturday’s annual fundraiser in Boca Grande, Florida, attention now turns to Naples where the second fundraiser will be held on the 19th.

Saturday’s event, held at the Boca Grande’s Gasparilla Inn Beach Club, featured presentations on the results of the tarpon tagged near Boca Grande in 2010 with funds raised from last year’s event, as well as results of a recent study on the economic value of the tarpon fishery for the region.

The second event, to be held at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Naples, will benefit BTT research programs and education initiatives. Entry fee for this fundraiser is $100 per person and includes a membership to BTT, Pirates of the Flats DVD, and a BTT t-shirt.

There will be raffles, silent auctions, and live auctions with items donated by Orvis, Costa sunglasses, Wild River Press, fishing lodges and much more.  Space is limited, be sure to contact BTT (bonefish@mote.org) to reserve a spot at either fundraiser, and turn out to win some great items and help out BTT.
