Greetings fellow Skalleagues,

Have you registered for our 6th Salute to Tourism event one week from today? It will be the biggest yet. We already have over 70 people registered so be sure to join us as we honor some spectacular and well deserving people.

Our Annual Holiday Party, Wine Pull and Silent Auction is Monday,December 16, 2019 at T-Pepin’s Hospitality Centre. This year's theme is Candy Land and I am sure it will be as beautiful and entertaining as ever and there will be amazing auction items up for bid.

We count on this event to help support our Club and or initiatives throughout the year. If you can donate wine or a gift certificate for a Hotel Stay, Dining, Attraction, Excursion or Service, we would certainly appreciate it.

You can email to arrange a pick up or if you are attending Salute to Tourism Monday, we will be gathering items then.

You can mail certificates to SKAL Tampa Bay, c/o Steven Rodriguez, 14280 Passage Way, Seminole FL 33776

Here is the official 2019 Auction Request form.
