2016 Fall Fundraiser!!!

Reggae with the Ridleys Flyer

2016 Fall Fundraiser!!!!


Can you believe summer is wrapping up and fall is on the way?!!

That being said, it is time once again for our annual fundraiser! This year’s theme…Reggae with the Ridleys!  The event will be held at Louie’s Backyard on Saturday, September 17th from 5:30pm – 10pm.

This is a locally driven event and it is because of our generous and loyal community that Sea Turtle, Inc. has grown and thrived as a non-profit sea turtle rescue center.

It should be coinciding very closely with breaking ground on our new facility - the contractors are eager to get started, as are we!!! So please, come join us for a great party!  Reggae attire is encouraged to liven up the evening, as well as a costume contest again this year!  We have a great band lined up, The Dabs, who play a wide array of musical styles, including reggae, of course, rocksteady, ska, Texas swing, gypsy swing, and bluegrass. Can’t get better than that for a fun night of dancing!! There will be food to please all taste buds, as well as a full cash bar. And to top things off, we will have a silent and live auction full of amazing items!

Dinner is scheduled to run from about 6:30-8 with the silent auction taking place alongside and the live auction to follow. The band will be there to keep the party going all evening long!

Tickets are $40 per person. The venue and all auction items have been donated to ensure that the proceeds go to Sea Turtle, Inc. and our capital campaign. Our vision is to be perceived as a world leader in sea turtle recovery and education through our expanded facility at South Padre Island, and to further contribute to the conservation of sea turtle populations worldwide. With our generous benefactors matching $1.3 million towards the capital campaign and new facility, everything we make at the event will be doubled!!

We are so appreciative of our supportive community, and we cannot wait to see you there!!!
