    Not only do we have a bar at the reception, we now have a LIVE BAND!! If you want to come just stop by our booth and we'll hook you up with an invitation when you donate, bid, or buy raffle tickets. If you're not going to the boat show, send me a PM.

    As far as goodies go, we now have over $15,000 of artwork, fishing trips, scuba gear, gift certificates, and tons of other great stuff to raffle, auction, or just plain give away!!:D More generous contributions are coming in every day!

    Our Wounded Heroes deserve every little bit we can do for them. Come on out and show your support!

    You guys did an outstanding job, the team work of the community of South Florida and The South Florida Divers Dive Club in support of SUDS is inspiring. In a very short time you were able to pull it together and do what it takes to make it happen. All the staff of SUDS are extremely appreciative for all your hard work in support of this great cause. Your donation will go directly to our injured soldiers working on their scuba certification and help to cover their travel expenses to complete the open water portion.
