According to Fort Myers Beach Community Foundation Communciations Lead Jessica Hernstadt, there are still some swag bags available for purcase at the library or online at https://fmbcommunityfoundation.com/product/fashion-show-2021-swag-bags/ for $25.
The foundation will deliver the swag bags on-island to those who purchase through the website.
“In addition to containing fun items like a piece of jewelry, coupons/discounts at local shops and a variety of promotional items, the swag bags, which are numbered, offer the purchaser the chance to win prizes. Throughout the Fashion Show, Swag Bag numbers will be called out and prizes will be awarded. You do not have to watch the Fashion Show to win, since we are registering the Swag Bags with people’s names and phone numbers,” Hernstadt stated through a press release.
The foundation has played a critical role over the past year in raising funds to distribute Publix gift cards to local workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
