BlueGreen 2018

BlueGreen is Florida’s premier fundraising event for wildlife conservation and outdoor education and recreation.  Proceeds benefit the many programs of the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, which since 1994 has raised and given away more than $27 million in collaboration with the Florida Fish and Wildlife and Conservation Commission (FWC) and many other public and private partners.  We are Florida’s largest private funder of outdoor education and camps for children and teens, helping provide 200,000 youth annually with formative experiences in nature.

BlueGreen 2018 will be held Saturday evening, October 27, 2018 at Armature Works in Tampaoverlooking the Hillsborough River along Tampa’s vibrant Riverwalk. BlueGreen2018’s guest of honor and speaker is Bass Pro Shops Founder and CEO Johnny (John L.) Morris. A conservationist at heart, Mr. Morris is one of the country’s leaders working to ensure natural habitats, wildlife, and the outdoors remain healthy and abundant for future generations.

BlueGreen 2018 will begin at 6:00 pm and includes a cocktail hour, dinner, silent and live auctions, and music by the Matt Winter Band.  We will be auctioning a 22-foot Contender Sport with 250 HP Yamaha engine and Loadmaster trailer, as well as many unique hunting, fishing and wildlife trips, wildlife art by nationally known artists, and high-end outdoor gear.

More than 40 businesses, organizations and individuals sponsored last year’s event, helping us net more than $300,000 for conservation and outdoor programs.  We hope you will join us as a Platinum ($50000+), Gold ($25,000), Silver ($10,000) or Bronze ($5,000) Sponsor of BlueGreen 2018.
