The Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary program came in 2nd place again this year for the Pensacola Bay Area Impact 100 grant.  At the Impact 100 organization’s annual meeting, the full grant amount of  $114,000 was awarded to the other finalist in the Environmental, Recreation and Preservation category,  St. Michael’s Cemetery Preservation Program.    Had the Marine Sanctuary been awarded the grant,  the  monies would have funded two of the three reef sites in the Marine Sanctuary plan.

This marks the second year the Marine Sanctuary program has been a finalist for the Impact 100 grant.   Mandy Evers authored this year’s grant and was successful at getting the program to the finals for this, the second consecutive year.    Site visits were conducted with each applicant by  Impact 100 committees  after which two finalist in each of five categories were selected.  The vote was held to award the grant immediately after the final presentations at the annual meeting.

While we are disappointed that the Marine Sanctuary was not the recipient,  congratulations go the St. Michael’s Cemetary Preservation Program for their achievement.   The Marine Sanctuary Committee also thanks the members of the Pensacola Bay Area Impact 100 for the opportunity to  compete for the grant.

The marine sanctuary program submitted a grant requesting $250,000 to Pepsi’s Refresheverything online grant program at midnight (ET) on September 1st.  The Refresheverything grant program administrators will review the first 1,000  ideas submitted and those that are approved will be eligible for public online voting  during the month of October via the Refresheveryting website.  The title of the marine sanctuary grant is “Make The Gulf Snorkelicious!  Heal The Gulf With Beach Reefs” .

Look for a Vote Snorkelicious campaign to begin shortly before October.  Each person can vote daily during the month at www.refresheverything.com once the October grant voting cycle is opened.
