The Seafood Festival has become a signature event for Marco Island. Premier sponsors for 2011 sponsors include Seminole Casino and Mutual Bank of Omaha and Sunshine Stitchers. Sponsorship opportunities for those wishing to support a good cause and gain great exposure in this market are still available. Proceeds from the weekend go to support the local and international humanitarian efforts of the Sunrise Rotary Club, the Noontime Rotary Club of Marco Island and the Kiwanis Club. Sponsorship opportunities are available. “The Marco Island Seafood Festival committee looks forward to another wonderful year and we are happy to work with the City of Marco Island, the Chamber of Commerce, over 200 volunteers, especially all those who work behind the scenes to make the event a success! It’s going to be a GREAT time!” Niemczyk said.
