Gulfport Merchants Association Announces Grant Recipients

GULFPORT, FLORIDA: The Gulfport Merchants Association (GMA) has announced its selection of recipients for 2017 Community Support Grants.  Two organizations were chosen to receive grants that will be funded by a portion of proceeds from the GMA’s slate of “Gecko Events” in late summer of 2017:  the Art Gecko Show on Friday, August 5th, the Gecko Crawl on Saturday, August 12th, the Gecko Ball on Saturday, August 26th, and GeckoFest on Saturday, September 2nd.  Grants will be awarded and amounts will be determined after the conclusion of all events.

The recipients chosen by the GMA Board of Directors are among non-profit organizations which are either based in Gulfport, or include Gulfport in their service area.  One of the 2017 grant recipients is the Sonia Plotnick Health Fund, providing funding for women’s health and medical needs not covered by insurance.  The other grant recipient is Creative Play Preschool which will use grant funding to create an “Edible School Yard” program, described as “an interactive outdoor learning lab” and “mini food forest.”

Grant recipients were chosen from among groups who applied earlier in the year.  Several other worthy organizations applied for grants and the decision-making process was difficult.  Grants or donations are offered to local non-profit groups each year following the conclusion of “Gecko Season.”  Public art installations in Gulfport’s Waterfront District have also been funded with Gecko Event proceeds in past years.  The GMA would like to thank all organizations which applied for grants this year for their very worthy contributions to our community.
