You probably know we're counting down to OceanWise (6 reservation-making days left!), a delightful evening of delicious, sustainable seafood, wine and beer - including some local brew!, a silent auction, friends, conversation and more...all coming together to benefit a local treasure: The GTM Research Reserve. And as excited as we are about the support of the community, the anchors of dedication provided by our volunteers, the fun of the silent auction and the palate-pleasing offerings of favorite local restaurants and their chefs de cuisine, the truth is that none of this would be possible without our sponsors.
We all know that business isn't *quite* business-as-usual these days. Many businesses are still finding their feet in the current economic climate, looking cautiously at their every expenditure, often making difficult decisions about how to allocate precious resources. So the businesses that have chosen to support OceanWise and its direct beneficiary, The GTM Reserve, have made a real commitment to the people of St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville; they’ve take deliberate action to benefit those of us who live in northeastern Florida and the many visitors who help underpin our local economy.
This commitment is worthy of a brief pause of acknowledgement and thanks. Thank you, OceanWise sponsors:
Cap’s on the Water
Vystar Credit Union
Serenata Beach Club
Bank of America
Mane de Leon Salon
Marriott at Sawgrass
Lofgren Rich RE/MAX Team
Wingate Insurance Group
Green F1 Properties
Please join us in thanking them by thinking of them as you make those same decisions about allocating YOUR precious resources, both business and personal.
And PLEASE don't miss OceanWise, where these names will be joined by many, many more donors, volunteers, silent auction contributors and by a diverse, fun party of people who share a vision of The GTM Reserve, a gift of pristine natural beauty for generations to follow ours.
