To All Stewards parents and friends of The Stewards Volunteers

Come join us as we provide hospitality to the masses celebrating the annual Gasparilla Pirate Fest. The parade is Saturday, January 27th and we're looking for all volunteers to be there at our "BEER GARDEN" from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM. 

This is a fundraiser that benefits The Stewards Foundation. As one of many, non profit 501(C)(3) organizations that submitted applications, we were selected by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla to run one of the Hospitality Beer Gardens.
