Millennial Brewing Company is partnering with Ocean Habitats, Inc. — an environmental nonprofit committed to rebuilding Florida’s coastal ecosystem with man-made reef installations — for a fundraiser to commemorate World Oceans Day.
The 1,000 Reef Challenge will take place on Saturday, June 8th, at Millennial Brewing — 1811 Royal Palm Ave. in Fort Myers.
The special event includes:
- Live music by Gator Nate and other local bands
- Limited-time beer
- Celebrity guests
- Speaking engagements by water quality experts
- Kids and family activities
- Food trucks
- Silent auction
A portion of the proceeds from participating vendors and beer sales will go to Ocean Habitats. This will contribute to 1,000 reef installations on marinas, docks and waterways that line the Gulf Coast of Southwest Florida.
“This 1,000 Reef Challenge is the kickoff of a statewide movement during which we are all able to not only filter millions of gallons of water daily but restore life throughout our waterways,” said David Wolff, Executive Director of Ocean Habitats.
“We’re excited to partner with Millennial Brewing as a way of educating the community about water quality and ensuring a great time for all fundraiser attendees.”
There is no entry fee for this event, and there is no need to RSVP. For more information, call Millennial Brewing at (239) 271-2255 or visit MillennialBrewing.com.
