Each year, The Great Mates, a nonprofit organization within the Bradenton Yacht Club, selects one local organization to support through their annual fundraising efforts. The Great Mates have raised and contributed more than $525,000 since 2002 to local Manatee County charities. This year, we are excited to announce they have selected to support our mission at HOPE Family Services! Matching funds up $25,000 provided through the generosity of the John J. Gorr Foundation (Alexandra St. Paul, Donor Advisor) of Manatee Community Foundation. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication the Great Mates have for helping the Manatee County community.
