Fort Myers Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
The Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina recently partnered with the founders of the first annual Float for Life event in an attempt to raise awareness of the clean waters movement that resulted from the Lake Okeechobee releases. As the area's only ‘green marina', Pink Shell saw the partnership as another perfect fit to continue their efforts of working towards a cleaner future for all.
Float for Life is Southwest Florida’s first and only event promoting the environmental, economic, psychological and physical benefits of keeping our waters clean. On Sunday, July 13, 2014 numerous service organizations, local businesses and community members will gather on the beach at the resort in an attempt to create the record for the largest Ocean Float experience. The primary goal of this record-creating effort is to gain attention for the many benefits of our clean waters and the quality of life they provide in our communities.
“As a Green Lodging designated hotel, and the area's only green marina, we are delighted to be involved in raising awareness of the importance of water quality in Southwest Florida,” said Ellis Etter, Director of Sales & Marketing for Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina.
Pink Shell is offering out of town guests two different overnight packages that include the $10 event admission for up to two people, complimentary breakfast for two and free recreation rentals. The resort has dedicated a portion of the profits from the vacation packages to the event, whose funds will be divided amongst three beneficiary organizations that are focused on keeping local waters clean and maintaining a healthy ecosystem. These are the Rivers Coalition, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, and the Sanibel Sea School.
