Freebooters Put the Fun in Fundraiser

Sept. 16 brought a successful fundraiser for the Westchase Krewe of Freebooters at the Westchase Golf Course.

Now you can mark your calendars for their next fun event.

The 18-hole fundraiser featured more than 70 Krewe members, friends, and family (and a few mermaids) and raised more than $6,600. Portions of the proceeds will be donated to the Ocean's Daughter Conservation Alliance and will fund a variety of causes throughout the year, including promoting, protecting and preserving marine life and empowering the general public with ocean literacy awareness campaigns.

The Krewe's next fundraising event will be a poker tournament on Dec. 2 at the Tampa Bay Downs Silks Room. Participants will enjoy a private buffet dinner, a cocktail reception and a professionally staffed poker tournament.  The top three players will earn an estimated $500 each in cash prizes!  This event is open to the public.  The entry fee is $100 per person. To register, please send an e-mail to or call Eric Holt at 727-2019.
