The MATLACHA HOOKERS are a 501c3 charitable organization and our mission statement is to "Make a Positive Difference in Our Community". And we do! Each year we give financial support to other organizations with our fundraising activities. We donate to the Food Pantry; provide School Supplies; contribute to the HOLIDAY HOUSE; sing Christmas carols for the SENIOR BASKET BRIGADE; and participate in Blood Drives. We volunteer at events such as Mango Mania; Adopt-a-Road clean-up; 4th of July Parade; Chamber events; Breast Fest; Meals on Wheels; Taste of Pine Island; and Art Fest. We grant small financial requests and Scholarships to graduates. Since 2003 the Matlacha Hookers have awarded over $150,000.00 in scholarships. Yearly we have dedicated fundraisers that we plan and run like the PINE ISLAND ELEMENTARY FISHING TOURNAMENT & DERBY; the BAG-N-TAG; and an Island Luau Event that benefits the Greater Pine Island Community. But we could not do this without the generous support from our business community. We ask that you consider making a donation to support our efforts. Sponsorships available.
