Foundation Event Raises Thousands for Camp

At the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida’s Campfire Concert on Friday, March 29th, the south Florida community opened their wallets, raising more than $500,000, the majority of which will support the Everglades Youth Conservation Camp.

The concert at Jupiter’s Pelican Club featured performances from country music sensations Chris Janson and Ricky Young. Laura Russell, Tucker Frederickson, John Lacy, and Josh Kellam co-chaired the sold-out event.

Dressed in denim and diamonds, guests also enjoyed dinner and a live auction of exclusive items. Donors received a plush Florida black bear for their commitment to conserve wild Florida for future generations. The night ended with a social hour on the Pelican Club’s deck, where guests enjoyed campfire s’mores and waterfront views of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.
