The Founders Fund is inviting the public to support them at a ‘fun’ fundraising event – “Celebrity Bartender Night’ at Cosmos Café & Pizzeria from 5 to 6 pm on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. Naples Mayor, Bill Barnett, and The Founders Fund Board Chair, Robert McNaghten, will be serving as the celebrity bartenders for the event.
A complimentary martini will be given to each person making a donation to The Founders Fund during the event. Cosmos is located at 536 Tamiami Trail North, a half-mile north of 5th Avenue South in Naples.
Cosmos Italian Cafe and Pizzeria offers authentic and inspired Italian cuisine. Their menu features fresh homemade pastas, specialty pizzas, seafood, sandwiches and more.
“We are excited to have Cosmos help support our mission to help change the lives of Collier County students by affording them the ability to attend college or technical school,” says Rob McNaghten, Founders Fund Board Chair. “We rely on businesses to help us meet our goals and are very thankful for this opportunity.”
The Founders Fund, founded in 1991 by Club Pelican Bay golf members, is a non-profit/tax-exempt charitable organization and since its inception, over 650 students have been awarded more than $3.6 million in scholarships.
