ST. LUCIE COUNTY --
Join in the fun for Sea-Life Habitat Improvement Project's Island Beach Party on Saturday, Oct.26, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Inlet Beach Bar & Grille in Fort Pierce.
This fundraising event benefits the Sea-Life Habitat Improvement Project. SHIP is a 501.c.3 public charity with a mission to deploy a large Navy type ship off the Treasure Coast as an artificial reef.
"This will be our third annual fall fundraising event and we want this afternoon to be just plain fun and relaxation," said Andy Brady, President of SHIP.
"In appreciation of the great support we get from our community here on the Treasure Coast our themed party is aimed to put the fun in fundraising. We have a great location for the party, working with the crew at the Inlet Beach Bar & Grille. We have some really unique art for auction from The Sinking World Exhibit and local watercolor artist Amber M. Moran. Treasure Coast Kick Ball will begin a full season of Beach Volleyball Tournaments and we are very fortunate to have the reggae sounds of Tropical Soul."
"If you haven't yet had the opportunity to hear Tropical Soul, then you are in for a real treat," said Mr. Brady.
Tropical Soul is a unique group of reggae artists whose members are "Masters of Reggae" in their own right. Local industry legend Stevie Rose leads the group and joining him for this event will be Mikey Ranglin (son of the Godfather of Reggae & Ska, Ernest Ranglin), Pato Banton, Chi Summers, Rasklamps aka "Klampa", Linden Aaron and Ras Trent will all be in the house. They have toured with groups such as Third World, The Wailers, Rita Marley, Culture, Burning Spear to name a few.
The party includes lunch and a complimentary beverage. There will also be silent auction and raffle items.
Tickets are $35. You can RSVP by calling April Price at (772) 285-1646, e-mail; firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.SinkOurShip.org.
