LSP Shuffle and Social Fundraising Event to Benefit Academy Prep

Posted On 03/11/2019 by St. Pete Chamber

Please join the Leadership St. Pete® (LSP) Class of 2019 in supporting Academy Prep by attending our Shuffle and Social fundraising event Wednesday, March 20 2019 at the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM.  It promises to be a fun night of shuffleboard play, music, food, drinks, auction, and chance drawings!

Funds raised for the project will create an outdoor organic garden that will not only benefit the students at Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg, but will also bolster awareness in the surrounding community and serve to reinforce the benefits and importance of an active, healthy lifestyle and will provide fresh healthy food to a community with limited resources. 

This class project is so much more than just a garden, we are looking to turn this space into an outdoor classroom, complete with fruit trees, herb gardens, a butterfly garden, an irrigation system, sunshades, picnic tables, and even a mobile cooking center for use in fresh meal preparation!  This is a huge task, and we cannot do it alone–we need your support!
