Rockin' for Robin - Dual-benefit held in Cape Coral and Fort Myers Beach for well-loved local

July 30, 2014
Melissa Schneider - Editor (mschneider@breezenewspapers.com) , Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

Always doing her part to help the local community, now the community is stepping up to help her. Robin Curley has been a part of the Southwest Florida circuit for nearly a decade. She always has a smile on her face and passing on good vibes to all who have a chat with her. Even while she's currently battling colon cancer, she's smiling, all the while, her community is backing her up to help with the cost of the extensive testing and procedures. Not one, but TWO very special benefits will be held in the coming weeks to help with Robin's costs one on Fort Myers Beach, one in Cape Coral.

Rockin' for Robin in Cape Coral

The Rockin' for Robin benefit in Cape Coral is taking place Sunday, Aug. 31, from 1 to 7 p.m., at BackStreets Sports Bar, 915 SE 47th Terrace. Look forward to plenty of great live music from Renee Massie Hose, DVS and ReVamped Rock, along with a wealth of raffle prizes, silent auctions and more.

She always has a smile on her face and passing on good vibes to all who have a chat with her. Even while she’s currently battling colon cancer, she’s smiling, all the while, her community is backing her up to help with the cost of the extensive testing and procedures. Not one, but TWO very special benefits will be held in the coming weeks to help with Robin’s costs – one on Fort Myers Beach, one in Cape Coral. Photo courtesy ROBIN CURLEY.

"Thus far, just through Facebooking and while not yet soliciting, we've had a hot air balloon ride for two, DJ time, a massage, a basket from Arkansas containing wonderful homemade soaps, etc., and jewelry donated," said Dana Caldwell, Cape Coral benefit coordinator. "Southwest Florida ROCKS! Keep in mind, we're looking for anything and everything to auction or raffle for Robin Curley. Cheers!"

If interested in making a donation for the Cape Coral benefit, contact Dana, 239-253-7401, or email dccaldwell@naplesnews.com.

Be sure to come by the Lighthouse Tiki Bar Saturday, Sept. 13, from noon to 6 p.m., to lend your support to lovely local Robin Curley.

Enjoy loads of fun, including music, food, raffles, silent auctions, and lots more. As these events are still early on, details are still pending for music. If you're a local band/musician or DJ who would like to donate an hour or so of your time to perform during the benefit, or if you'd like to contribute a gift for the raffles, please call Fort Myers Beach coordinator Mike "Popeye" Dearden, 239-244-4437. For updates at either benefit for Miss Robin, check out the special event page on Facebook, Rockin' Robin Curley.

Contributing to the cause

Contributions to Rockin' for Robin can be made by making checks payable either directly to Robin Curley, or in the case of contributions desiring a tax exemption letter for their donation, make checks payable to the Florida Helps Foundation. EVERY dollar contributed in this fashion will be remitted to Robin, but in order to receive your tax credit, checks must be recorded in the non-profit's books. This validates your contribution with the IRS. In either case, mail your contribution to: Popeyepalooza, P.O. Box 6103, Fort Myers Beach, Fla. 33932. Contributions made out directly to Robin will be channeled to her immediately, while those going through the Florida Helps Foundation will experience a one week delay only.
