Yachts of Hope

Yachts of Hope—a fundraiser for Hope Hospice at Gulf Harbor Yacht and Country Club—raised more than $500,000.

The event marked the start of Hope Hospice’s capital campaign.  The goal is to build a new hospice house and senior care facility at the corner of Six Mile Cypress and Metro Parkway.

The evening was hosted by Sandy Stilwell Youngquist, Sonya Sawyer and Lizbeth Benacquisto, along with committee members Pam Cronin, Deanna Hansen, Andie Vogt and Mary Jo Walker.  Featured were tours of 15 luxury yachts.

Also included were tastings from fine local restaurants and caterers including Cru, LYNQ, Keyline Bistro, SABORAM and Purple Spoon.
