Beach Tapa Hop official looks for contributions

To the editor:

It's that time of year again for the 11th annual Fall Tapa Hop hosted by the Greater Fort Myers Beach Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors on Sept. 17, 2013.

We are looking for businesses that would be interested in contributing a raffle/door prize of any value. These prizes would be dropped off at the Chamber of Commerce or I will be happy to save you the trip and come by your place of business to pick them up.

We also have a few spots left to hang your business banner during the event on one of our Beach trolleys for only $100 (you must supply the banner).

Please remember that YOU and YOUR employees are invited to attend the event too!! Tickets purchased in advance are only $30; tickets purchased at the door the day of the event will be $35 and are based on availability.

What is a Tapa Hop? With the purchase of an event ticket you will board one of our Beach trolleys to visit six participating Chamber member restaurants that are each serving three of their specialty "goodies" to munch on while offering a cash bar. With the nominal additional purchase of $1 per poker score card (no limit- while they last) you will draw a playing card at each of the six locations. The winner will be determined at the final restaurant location with the best five-card hand and win a cash prize.

Where is the Tapa Hop? The check in will begin at The Fish House Restaurant located behind Santini Marina Plaza.

When is the Tapa Hop? It is on Tuesday, Sept. 17. Check-in begins at 5 p.m. at The Fish House. The first Beach trolley will depart promptly at 5:30. All trolleys will return to Santani Marina Plaza around 9:30 p.m. for the final prize drawings and awarding of the best poker hand. You must be present to win.

If you have any questions concerning the event or would like me to pick up your raffle/door prize, please contact me at 425-6438 or
