To reach as many people as possible, the Dive Pirates Foundation moved its annual Dive Pirates Ball online for a one-hour event to include a live auction, registration giveaway, trip raffle and much more as it continues its mission to celebrate life after injury through adaptive scuba diving.
“We are thrilled to meet our recipients and chapters where they are now, all across the country, as well as our friends and family around the world as we find ourselves all operating online these days,” said Dive Pirates President and Co-Founder Sophie Wimberley. “We hope everyone interested will dial in and learn more about us and help us support these men and women who’ve had life-altering events and deserve to still experience that sense of self-worth, accomplishment and inclusiveness diving offers.”
The Dive Pirates, through AmFund, is offering a Golden Ticket Raffle where the winner gets to choose one of three trips offered; Key West, Bodega Bay or Sedona. Only 100 tickets will be sold and they are $100 each, on sale now. Everyone who registers for the online event is automatically entered into a Yeti Pirate Adventure Package. The winner must be online and actively involved in the live stream event to claim the prize.
“With our online event, you will have a front row seat with our keynote speaker, Retired Specialist Steve Baskis, who was blinded by an IED while serving in Iraq. His story is amazing, his resolve and motivation a true inspiration,” continued Wimberley.
