The Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor & Convention Bureau is a member of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA) and PR Manager Jennifer Huber sits on their Board of Directors.

Their annual conference will be held Sept. 12–15 in Hernando County. The conference is attended by about 100 people in the outdoor communications field.

Part of the conference is an auction to raise funds for FOWA, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which includes scholarships for college students interested in outdoor communications.

The VCB is putting a package(s) together and if your business would like to contribute, please contact Jennifer Huber by Aug. 20 at jennifer.huber@charlottecountyfl.gov. Gift certificates for hotel stays, dining, activities and services are appreciated.

If you donate, your brochures will be displayed during the conference’s TJ Stallings Product and Tourism Showcase.
