WHAT: 3rd annual CCSO Build-A-Boat Regatta

DATE: Monday, Aug. 13

TIME: 9 a.m.

LOCATION: Lake Avalon at Sugden Regional Park, 4284 Avalon Drive, East Naples

SUMMARY: Join Sheriff Kevin Rambosk and members of the Collier County Sheriff’s Office as young boat builders take to the waters of Lake Avalon to sail one of their handmade vessels and share time with the deputies who worked with them.

The event will be the grand finale to mark the end of Summerfest, CCSO’s summer youth activities extravaganza, now in its third year.

Summerfest is made possible thanks to partnerships with Collier County Parks and Recreation, the Collier County School District and more than 200 area donor businesses and individuals.

CCSO partnered with Heritage Arms, Insurance Solutions of Southwest Florida, Marine Industries Association of Collier County, Spanky’s Speakeasy, and Tamiami Ford in the Build-A-Boat program this year.
