The signature fundraising event benefits the Florida Keys History and Discovery Foundation, which operates the Keys History & Discovery Center, a world-class museum facility that preserves and shares the incredible history of our Upper Keys community and explores the unique ecology of the region. In addition to permanent exhibits on subjects such as Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railway, Legends of the Line, and First People, the Discovery Center offers a successful lecture series, educating the general public through presentations from a variety of expert speakers. The museum’s second floor features a state-of-the-art theater showing documentaries on topics like the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane, traveling exhibits, and the Jerry Wilkinson Research Library.
