Fundraiser to support scholarships for non-traditional students
The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business Committee will host its annual “Sweethearts and Scholarships Wine & Dessert Auction” fundraiser from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a chance drawing for a variety of wine, desserts and other prizes. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Women in Business’ scholarship fund, which awards scholarships annually to non-traditional students pursuing their educational goals at Florida SouthWestern State College, Florida Gulf Coast University and Hodges University.
Sweethearts and Scholarships will take place at Millennial Brewing Company, 1811 Royal Palm Ave. in Fort Myers with accommodations indoors and outdoors to allow for physical distancing. Arekie Food Truck will be on-site with food available for purchase and music will be provided by DJ Mal.
Admission is $10 for members of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and $20 for future members and includes one complimentary drink. For attendees’ safety and to avoid in-person exchanges of cash and credit cards, the Chamber is encouraging people to register and buy their prize tickets online in advance at Members.FortMyers.org/Events. Pre-sale tickets will be waiting at check-in.
Prize donations and event sponsorships are being accepted until Jan. 28. Email Debra@fortmyers.org or call 239-332-2930 for more information.
