Dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant Marks Over Quarter Century of Community Support For HelpingKids Grow Up Safe, Healthy & Drug-Free

The 26th anniversary of Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership’s Annual Fundraising Dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant will be celebrated with stone crabs, generous donors and celebrity sightings.

On May 16th, a pre-dinner social will kick-off the event at 6:30 p.m. A surprise group will lead party-goers into the dinner at 7:30 p.m., where guests will enjoy Joe’s signature dishes and legendary service, said Co-Chairs Cindy & Chico Goldsmith and Susan & Robin Shelley. Peggy B. Sapp, president and CEO of Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership, credits community support with enabling the organization to reach so many families across Florida.

“Every year, we benefit from an outpouring of generosity from families who care about educating and nurturing their children,” said Sapp. “It’s hard to believe it’s been 26 years since Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership joined with Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant to hold this wonderful event, raising money to prevent drug use and underage drinking. Now, many of the children of our original supporters are parents themselves and our prevention programs are reaching this next generation.”

This year, there is also a ticketed opportunity to win dinner for 20 guests at Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant. Only 500 tickets will be sold for a minimum suggested donation of $100. The drawing will be held at 8:30pm the night of the event. Tickets can also be purchased at

A limited number of single seats to the event are still available at $325 and barstools are $250.
