April 5, 2019 until 9:00 pm May 8th, 2019.
Don't dress up.

Enjoy the evening however you choose!
Join Friends of Gumbo Limbo for the 2019 Un-Sea Coast Toast!
We're trying something new this year, and skipping the dress up sit-down gala, but we still need your help and support. Sea Turtles still need special care and treatment to be saved, fish and critters still need food and care, scholarship, research, exhibits, and public programs still need support. Instead of a fancy night out, we ask for your support from the comfort of your home (or wherever you are).
Know that 100% of your ‘ticket’ price is a tax-deductible donation*
You can help by purchasing one of our tickets, making a custom donation, or participating in our online auction (click here to see); better yet, all of the above!
$50 - One "ticket" to stay at home, and to help provide one day of medicine for a large sea turtle in our rehab center.
$100 - A pair of "tickets" for a couple to spend an evening in, and to help cover the cost of diagnostic testing for a sick sea turtle.
$225- A "table" for four friends anywhere they feel like, and to help provide educational materials to a class of young students at Gumbo Limbo.
$500 - VIP Virtual "table" for 10, to help equip our Sea Turtle Conservation Team with innovative tools to deter predators from vulnerable sea turtle nests.
$1,000 - Chairman's Circle, !to help outfit a marine turtle specialist with GPS enabled tools for sea turtle nesting surveys, which are vital to measuring program outcome.
$2,500 Founders's Circle, help provide microscopes for 5th grade students in our lab class.
