Be a part of All Charities Weekend
It is with great enthusiasm that we once again participate in All Charities Weekend at Ocean Reef.  

Here is a unique opportunity for you to promote your business to Ocean Reef members while giving back to those in need in the communities of Key Largo, Homestead, and Florida City.
Donated items for All Charities usually begin at a $500 value, but WAIT! The Ocean Reef Chamber of Commerce has negotiated a way for your business to be highlighted without the large price tag.  A $200 donation will include you on a donors' list and will allow you to display marketing material at the event. In turn, the Chamber will pool the donations to host a food stand for Club members on Saturday afternoon at the silent auction showcase.  The food stand will promote all donors and will allow placement of marketing materials.


Welcome New Members!
Please give a warm welcome to our new members:
