The Dunes Community in North Naples “Drink for Cancer” payed off in a big way when Kevin McCune General Manager of the Plantation Club presented a check to the American Cancer Society for $33,644.00. The First annual “celebrity bartender”  fundraiser had all 7 buildings participating in a weekly Happy Hour, with friends and family bar-tending for tips to be donated to the American Cancer Society. The spirited competition between buildings and a substantial donation from Signature Communities the Developer that built The Dunes made the first annual event a huge success.  “These events help unite the entire community at the Dunes and is a real testament to the residents that live here.”

They celebrated this past Monday at the Tiki Bar with representatives Paul Gloerse and Melissa Wolf from the American Cancer Society on hand to personally thank all the participants in helping raise money towards the fight against Cancer.  “ Not only will monies raised support ongoing research efforts, it helps provide valuable services to people who need help. We have volunteers that drive patients to and from chemo treatments, provide wigs and prosthetics to patients and help find support in their area.” said Paul Gloerse from the American Cancer Society.

It was such a huge success the community would like to make it an annual event! The fundraising doesn’t stop there, they are also hosting a tennis tournament to help raise funds to help Japan on April 24th.
