The Matlacha Mariners , a community orientated 501c3 non-profit corporation, is a group of hard working, fun loving men dedicated to serving greater Pine Island. We raise money by putting on festivals and fund raisers. All proceeds go to the local elementary school, charities, scholarships and other special needs.On March 27, 2010, we help out 9th Annual Southwest Florida Seafood Festival and Car Show. By all accounts it was our largest and most successful event ever. Additionally, a 2010 Harley Davidson Softail Deluxe motorcycle was raffled off.
The 11th Annual Southwest Florida Blues Festival, scheduled for November 20, 2010, is our next big event.
