FORT MYERS, Fla. (Jan. 28, 2014) – The Third Annual Tabarrini Foundation Bachelor Auction will be held Monday, Feb. 24 at Ter-Tini’s in south Fort Myers.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lewis P. Tabarrini Children’s Music Outreach Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that provides musical instruments and education to the less fortunate children of Southwest Florida.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. for ladies, and the auction will begin at 8 p.m. Guests will enjoy martinis, cocktails and tapas. Gentlemen are welcome after 10 p.m. when the band Traffic Jam will perform. A $10 donation will be requested at the door.
Lewis Tabarrini believed that a child with a musical instrument in his or her hands is less likely to get into trouble and he personally provided a number of children with their very first musical instrument. The organization was formed by Tabarrini’s children, including Bob Tabarrini of the band A200.
Ter-Tini’s is a new upscale martini and tapas bar located adjacent to Gator Lanes Bowling Center at 7050 Crystal Drive and the creation of longtime Gator Lanes’ owners Kevin and Terri Walsh. The concept was born out of the Walsh’s love of martinis, delicious food and live entertainment and is named after Terri.
