Keep the Springs Glowing Fundraiser

July 30 @ 5:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Manatee Fundraiser

Join Keepers of the Springs and First Magnitude Brewing Company on Saturday, July 30th for a night of
glowing lights, live music, vendors, brews, and tasty grub! The “Keep the Springs Glowing” inaugural
fundraiser will support Florida springs habitat restoration and education efforts. Throughout the
night, each pint purchased will help plant young eelgrass shoots in a spring. Why eelgrass, you ask?
Eelgrass is a favorite food of the vulnerable Florida manatee and is vitally important to spring
ecosystems! Join us at Keep the Springs Glowing to help save the Florida manatee and the places
they call home.

Starting at 5:00 PM, grab a beer, sway like grass to some live music, and explore tons of booths in
the beer garden. We will have learning activities for ALL AGES, local artists, raffles, plant sales,
creative workshops, and more! Stick around into the evening for the late-night glow party and DJ
sets. Wear your best glow attire or get decked out in glow gear when you arrive. All funds from glow
merchandise will support Keepers of the Springs restoration and education efforts!

Get ready to fill your glass and plant some grass!!!
