TAMPA BAY AREA, FL – John’s Pass Seafood Festival offers charity fundraising opportunities and exposure.
Have you ever wanted to be crowned King or Queen but haven’t had the opportunity? Let all of your dreams come true while raising money for your favorite charity this October. Applications for King and Queen are now being accepted. Votes will be collected based on funds raised. The male and female with the highest amount raised will split all incoming funds raised by all participants (including $100 entry fee per candidate) to be written the form of a check and presented to the charity of their choice. The crowning will immediately follow Sunday’s World Largest Bloody Mary Toast benefitting American Heart Association.
