DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa To Host The Annual Fort Myers Beach Relay For Life

March 23rd, 2015

DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa is excited to announce that they will host the 2015 Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life event for the 5th consecutive year. This annual event, presented by the American Cancer Society, will take place on April 11th at DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa, located on Fort Myers Beach.

The Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life event works in conjunction with other local Relay events for the common cause of American Cancer Society fundraising. The Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life is a unique Relay event in that the symbolic “track” where participants will take turns running or walking is located directly on the sand, with the Gulf of Mexico as a beautiful backdrop. This year’s Fort Myers Beach Relay event will end just past sunset, to complement the other larger community events that will follow the traditional overnight format. The theme for the 2015 Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life event is “I Can Survive,” inspired by the 70’s funk musical era. Come join us for this special, all-day event dedicated towards raising money and awareness for a cure!

Many of us have been affected by cancer in some way, whether it was a battle of our own or watching a loved one struggle with this life-threatening disease. According to American Cancer Society research, there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 deaths from cancer in the U.S. in 2015. Together, we can fight this overwhelming statistic, work toward a cure, and celebrate more birthdays.

The Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life will start its opening ceremony at 12pm. FOX 4 Rising anchors Kelly Dame and Miriam Zamorano will join Relay For Life teams and attendees to kickoff the event, which will start with a Survivor lap, followed by a lap with caregivers joining in, followed by a luncheon to honor Survivors. The day will be filled with live music, dancing, and activities on the beach. The event will end with a Luminaria candle ceremony at sunset, where attendees will honor and celebrate the lives of survivors and remember those lost to cancer.

The 2015 Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life event fundraising goal is $90,000. Donations are highly encouraged to help reach this goal. SunStream Hotels & Resorts and several other local businesses already have teams fundraising leading up to and continuing throughout the event, with all raised proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Money raised is used to fund cancer research, accommodations and transportation for cancer patients and their caregivers, and several other programs to help those suffering from this disease.

SunStream and The American Cancer Society invite you to join in supporting this amazing cause. Visit SunStreamRelay.com to start a team, join a team, or make a donation today!

ABOUT RELAY FOR LIFE

Relay for Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society. At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much.

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or other venue. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.  The funds raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

I’m not even sure thank you could even begin to express our gratitude.

March 9th, 2015

Johnny,

I’m not even sure thank you could even begin to express the gratitude Jackson and I have for your help in creating the wedding of our dreams. From the site visit to the moment before the ceremony, you were there for everything we needed with a smile and positive attitude. I cannot tell you how many times guests came up to me at the wedding (and even now!) to tell me how perfect, beautiful and amazing the wedding was and that is in HUGE part to you and your team! Everything was better than either of us imagined. So even though it doesn’t begin to cover our appreciativeness of everything you did, THANK YOU! You are the best!

 

- Amanda + Jackson

Festival-goers will have easy access to performances through complimentary trolley transportation to and from most venues, including local favorites the Crow’s Nest, Key Lime Bistro and Mucky Duck on Captiva as well as Nervous Nellie’s, Smokin’ Oyster Brewery and The Beached Whale on Fort Myers Beach.

How To Find The Best Seashells on Fort Myers Beach

June 17th, 2014

Fort Myers Beach Seashells

We all know southwest Florida is a beautiful destination, but the treasures found on the area’s beaches make it a truly special place. Southwest Florida is home to some of the best shelling in the world. The beaches of Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are covered with seashells of all shapes, sizes, and colors. It’s a shelling paradise! These treasures are just waiting for you to scoop them up.

Collecting seashells is one of our guest’s favorite activities. Guests can enjoy time on our beautiful white-sand beaches and will return home with fantastic souvenirs that they can give to family or use for decoration.

The SunStream Beach Team spent some time on south Fort Myers Beach with the internet’s top shelling expert, Pam Rambo of iLoveShelling.com. We brought her down from Sanibel Island to the beach located directly behind our sister properties to the south, Pointe Estero Beach Resort and GullWing Beach Resort, to educate our guests and followers on the tips and tricks of shelling. Watch as we learn how to find amazing seashells on Fort Myers Beach!

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay.

June 10th, 2014

Johnny,

I wanted to be sure to let you know the excellent job that you and EVERYONE at DiamondHead did for our entire stay. From the minute we arrived, the bell staff, front desk and everyone else we encountered was pleasant and extremely competent. What could have been an extremely stressful time, was for the most part, all about relaxation. Of course the facilities were top notch and the views amazing.

Enclosed is a small token of our appreciation for everyone there at DiamondHead. These are world famous jumbo jelly beans from The Wakarusa Dime Store. They are of course in Notre Dame colors. Could you please be sure that the folks in the Bell Service area receive some.

Once again, thanks and we look forward to staying there again.

Randy Cooper and family
