By Staff | Sep 15, 2023

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Ian, the city is organizing a community rally for a cause.

The “Cape Coral Together: Resilience Rally” will be held Friday, Sept. 29, from 6-10 p.m. at the German-American Social Club.

The event will feature live music from Deep Cover, Deb & The Dynamics, and Taylor Goyette as well as a variety of food trucks.

Organizations include the Cape Caring Center, Came Coral Animal Shelter, Cape Vineyard Church, Faith Generation, Kiwanis and the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

In place of an entry fee, attendees are encouraged to bring donation items such as non-perishable food, pet supplies, and safety gear. Participants will be given one raffle ticket for each donation item they bring.

Requested supplies include jelly, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, jarred sauces for pasta, pasta, boxes of mac and cheese, canned meats and hearty soups or stews, rice and dried potatoes, boxed cereals, non perishable sweets, baby items including diapers and wipes, bottles and sippy cups, blankets and towels and personal hygiene items like soap, toothpaste and shampoo.

Other wish list items include powdered Esbilac Puppy Milk Replacer, Pro Plan canned puppy chow, pine pelletized bedding and littler, toilet paper, copy paper and Post-Its.

Raffles will be drawn from the main stage throughout the evening, and winners must be present to win.

German-American Social Club is at 2101 SW Pine Island Road.
