Lani Kai hosts inaugural Santa Rocks the Lani Kai beach bash benefit

Come join us as we host the island’s biggest musical benefit beach bash for the children of Fort Myers Beach! Sponsored by Beach Baptist Church and the Lewis P. Tabarrini Children’s Music Outreach Foundation, enjoy several hours of live and local music from some of the hottest musicians around Southwest Florida during our inaugural Santa Rocks the Lani Kai Beach Bash, taking place from our Beach-side stage Sunday, Dec. 9, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Top-notch musical performances that day will include the Kate Skales Band, 2018 Creative mind record CMR winner TJ Brown, The Freecoasters, Not Guilty and the SIREN SAYS ROCK Band – plus some special musical surprises we have up our sleeves!

Numerous raffle prizes and silent auctions worth thousands of dollars will be up for grabs to some of the best businesses around the area. Resort and spa getaways, Key West excursions, restaurant hot spots, helpful home and car services, and much more. We’ll be hosting hourly raffles between music sets, as well as hosting all types of beach games and prizes for the whole family.

The Tabarrini Music Foundation will be on hand that day collecting a used instrument drive for any unwanted musical instruments you may have around your home or studio. Make a donation to the collection and receive a special gift that day.

“The Tabarrini Foundation is very happy to be teaming up with the Lani Kai Island Resort and the Beach Baptist church for this wonderful holiday event,” said Bob Tabarrini, from the Lewis P. Tabarrini Children’s Music Outreach Foundation. “Seeing the community pull together like this for the benefit of local children generates such a wonderful feeling. We look forward to seeing you all on the beach Sunday, Dec. 9th!”

Also, unwrapped toys (or pet food/supplies for Gulf Coast Humane Society) will be happily collected, which will go to Beach Baptist Church’s holiday toy drive. Every year, the church utilizes funds collected from fund-raisers such as this to gift toys and items to all of the children of Fort Myers Beach (not just members of the congregation).

We hope to see you out at this inaugural event to rock and roll for a cause. There is no cost to attend, all ages welcome.
