The sea turtles of the Gulf Coast could use a hand. The Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center's "Scond Annual Sea Turtle Soiree" is poised to repeat last year's fundraiser, a coastal party for the sake of its adopted cause. The big night is 7 to 10 p.m., December 13, at the Pensacola Beach Hilton.
"The support the community continues to show us, not only for this event but throughout the year, is truly humbling and we couldn't be more grateful," said Jennifer Polus, the center's executive director.
The inaugural soiree raised $12,000, which was used to build a covered outdoor classroom space. This year's proceeds will support the center as a whole, guided by its mission is "To conserve and protect threatened and endangered sea turtles through community education and partnered research." The evening starts with hors d'oeuvres and a full bar with live jazz by the Curt Bol Bank. A silent auction follows, offering thematic gift baskets ranging from wine to windsurfing lessons and local art.
