In early may of this year, Albert “Tony” Almeida, head of P.R. for the Southwest Florida Concierge and Guest Services Association, was shackled, handcuffed and shot twice by a disgruntled former employee at the Inn at the Springs in Bonita Springs, where he worked as hotel concierge.

Almeida, who is still going through recovery and is wheel chair bound, will be participating in a kayak tour that will be hosted by Swamp Explorers for the CGSA this Tuesday, August 24.

Rick Cruz of Swamp Explorers said, “We found it remarkable that this man has gone through so much and has not given up. We think your readers/viewers would love to hear a story of such determination about how Mr. Almeida has overcome such a tragic event.”

The tour will take place on Tuesday, August 24th at 9 a.m. The group will meet across from the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk at Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve. From there, they will drive to the launch area at East River for the kayak tour.
