Offshore Rodeo & Reggae Party reels $40K for charity

The inaugural Offshore Rodeo & Reggae Party made a big splash in Southwest Florida the first weekend of June.

A benefit for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida, anglers spent the day catching a variety of species for a chance to hook the top prize and enjoyed their fresh catch for dinner compliments of the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant.

The Awards Banquet, live music and brunch was held Sunday, June 2 at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa.

Since 1996, more than 2,500 families from Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties, as well as other states and countries, have found a “home away from home” at Ronald McDonald House in Fort Myers while their children are undergoing medical treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital. Additional thousands are served by the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and by grants and scholarships awarded to deserving individuals and organizations in the five-county region.
