Our team at Evie’s is actively involved in our community, and I have chosen to focus our effort on 4 major charities.
Special Olympics – This charity hits home because my brother was a Special Olympian. We have decided to make our weekly hole in one event during football Sunday’s our event that we raise money for the Special Olympics. We have been doing the hole in one for years and have had a wonderful turn out.
Operation Second Chance – We love our Veterans. The White Buffalo Saloon Tarpon Tournament we do in May of each year. Our goal is to raise money for Operation Second Chance and at the same time we invite around 10-14 veterans to come enjoy a weekend of tarpon fishing. We have numerous boats that will fish for a cash prize for 1st, 2nd and third place all at the same time supporting this great cause.
Moffitt Cancer Research Tampa – As we all know we have all had someone we know that has battled cancer. I had a family member that battle breast cancer and Moffitt was instrumental on helping her with her battle. She can now thank Moffitt for being 100% cured. We have our Evie’s Golf Tournament once a year to raise money.
Sarasota Police Foundation – Our officer’s need the community’s support. As someone that lives in the City and has numerous businesses, I thought our City Police Department needs a boost. I started the Sarasota Police Foundation in 2014. We are 100% volunteer and raise all private money to assist in training and needs of the department.
This is a group effort from all our employees to make these Charities successful. We thank the community and our staff for helping.
