"This is a really good cause and I can't imagine anyone who's not for clean water," Rachi Farrow said. "And the money goes to an island organization the Calusa Land Trust."

The purpose of the Calusa Land Trust is to protect the natural diversity and beauty of the Pine Island region by acquiring, managing and preserving in perpetuity environmentally sensitive or historically important land and to foster appreciation for and understanding of the environment and our past.

Entertainment was provided by Bobby B. Mann, who offered his unique style of karaoke from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by Hester Prynn from 2-5 p.m.

The Olde Florida Outpost is at 3269 Stringfellow Road in St James City. For additional information, call 239-558-5723.
