Gulf Breeze Sertoma is a local chapter of the many clubs belonging to Sertoma International. Sertoma's mission is "To improve the quality of life today for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss through education and support." Our vision is "To create communities of change under common leadership and with a common voice that will serve the many in need." Sertoma's primary service project is assisting the more than 50 million people in the United States with hearing or language disorders.
Gulf Breeze Sertoma Club was established in 1985 as a Corporation with 501(3) C status. Since then we have been a major contributor in the local Gulf Breeze and Santa Rosa county communities. Our membership base is consistently around 50, with about half of those being respected military service veterans. The primary charity we donate to is Speech & Hearing Aid Banks but we also provide donations to youth orientated and other local programs such as; Take Stock in Children, Santa Rosa Kids House, Good Samaritan Free Clinic, Pyramid, Fishing For AHERO and several others.
The Annual Gulf Breeze Sertoma Family Fishing Rodeo is our one and only fund raising activity with 100% of the net proceeds being returned to the community. This annual event has been successful for 27 years thanks to the generosity of our sponsor's donations, support from thousands of participating anglers and our ability to offer additional educational activities for all family members. We intend to obtain as many sponsor donations as possible for our Family Fishing Rodeo which provides visibility to the good-nature organizations willing to support the efforts of Gulf Breeze Sertoma. We support and recommend our corporate sponsors year-round to ensure continued growth for those businesses and our charitable reach.
We would greatly appreciate your corporate donation, sponsorship, contribution and participation in our 2018 Family Fishing Rodeo.
