PK Chamber Donates $2,000 to Local Pirates of Lost Treasure

Posted on Thursday, November 10, 2011
The Pirates of Lost Treasure have been helping local children at Christmas time for over 20 years with their Secret Santa Program.
Each child they sponsor is allocated $100 for toys, clothing, etc.
Because of the successful Membership Drive the PK Chamber hosted in September, we are able to donate to this most important fundraiser. We  are happy to report that we are able to sponsor 20 children this year!  

Last month, we asked for your help with our local food drive and the response was overwhelming.  Thank you!

We would now like to respectfully ask all of our generous and supportive Chamber Members and community to come together and help match the $2000 we are donating. Please remember this is a tax deductible donation as Pirates of Lost Treasure is a 501c3.

If you would like to donate to the Secret Santa Program please contact Bill Stromquist at (850) 324-3679.  All checks can me made out to Secret Santa and can be dropped off at the PK Chamber & VIC located at
15500 Perdido Key Dr.
