Joining some of the local business at Fort Myers Beach were The Florida Everblades and Florida Tarpon Reel Girls to teach guests traditional island dance styles. Every half hour, the Tarpon Reel girls held 50/50 raffles while also taking pictures with some of the thousands of guests.
One of the best parts about the event was that there was no entry fee to enter the Lani Kai, as the resort owners wanted to ensure that everyone was able to access the beach. Those who participated in the silent auction received a free glass of champagne and hors d’oeuvre while bidders observed the various items available for auction. Some of the auction items included boat rentals, resort accommodations, barrels of alcohol and a set of Fireball Whisky guitars.
