Pirates on the Panhandle, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation as outlined by the State of Florida. Operating as a Social Club, we invite like-minded folk to join our ranks as we get involved in the Navarre community by hosting charitable events. Our Club took over the Annual Navarre Beach Car, Bike & Truck Show five (5) years ago and added a Craft Fair and live bands each year. We recently hosted the 18th Annual Car Show on the second weekend in October. Last year's show was the largest event ever with 144 vehicles participating. The profits from this event go into the Club's Charity account which will then be donated to other charitable organizations in our community; please note the list of those organizations that have received funds from our Club below).
On January 1st 2018, the Club hosted the Inaugural New Year’s Day Pirate Plunge into the Gulf of Mexico with over 500 folks in attendance and raised over 8K to benefit the Weekend Food Program of Navarre. The 2nd Annual Pirate Plunge was a much bigger and better event plus the Club hosted a New Year's Eve Dinner Dance at the Navarre Conference Center with both events benefiting the Weekend Food Program of Navarre.
Since our beginnings in May of 2009, the Club has raised and donated well over $115,800 to the organizations listed below in need of financial assistance within the Navarre community. We welcome candidates to join our Little Band of Pirates to help assist in the planning and support the charitable events the Club does while enjoying some Grub & Grog with each other along the way.
Arrrrrrrrrrrrrr you ready to come on board and help us help others in our community that need our help? We are living proof that NOT all Pirates are bad!
