You May See Dolphins during a Cruise with King Fisher Fleet Here's something nifty to do on Saturday, July 13, 2013. When you book one of two cruises aboard King Fisher Fleet, all proceeds from the ticket sales benefit the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition's Food Storage Wars "Food Raiser." Here's the press release with details... PUNTA GORDA, FL—King Fisher Fleet, headquartered at Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda, has partnered with the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition’s Food Storage Wars “Food Raiser” by offering two cruises with all ticket sales being donated to the Coalition. Food Storage Wars is a 6-week “food raiser” for the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. During the campaign, local bands perform at locations around the county and at each venue they ask their followers to bring non-perishable food to the show. The Finale Jam Thank You Party at Harpoon Harry’s in Fishermen’s Village on Saturday, July 13, 2013, is the culminating event that will acknowledge the band who collected the most food. At the event there will be live music, games, raffle prizes, a look-a-like contest, silent auctions, and more.
