Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

The "Back Bay Bash," scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14, is a family & adult live music & entertainment festival being held at the Bootlegger's Waterfront BBQ at Salty Sam's Marina on Estero Bay and hosted by the Florida Helps Foundation.We are raising funds (two-thirds) to sustain and expand our PADLS Program (Persons with Autism or Disabilities Learn Swim) and (one-third) to support the Tabarrini Foundation's Children's Music Outreach and the Blue Crayonz Foundation.

The Back Bay Bash is a "Hybrid Festival," meaning it will cater to both families and the adult "festival" crowd. A range of activities, attractions,and other features will be offered for kids at our Kidz Zone. At 5 p.m., we will transition to a more adult-oriented music festival environment. Music acts will now target this adult crowd, with this year's theme being "Reggae/ Trop Rock."

We want this to be the First of Many music fests here on the Beach. Fort Myers Beach does NOT HAVE its own annual Music Fest UNTIL NOW! We hope this will be a great Charity Music Fest that ALL Beach'ers will support! Planning is WELL underway and now we're seeking interns and volunteers - the following areas to help us make this a great event:

- Marketing

- Website design & development

- Event Management

- Public relations

- Social Media

- Advertising

- Video production

- Fund raising

- Radio & TV media Coordination

If you're interested in joining our fun and talented team to bring an amazing music festival to Fort Myers Beach, please contact Mike at To see more info. about the Back Bay Bash (including our impressive Band Lineup!) please go to our website at .
