Fundraiser Garage Sale Announced By The Dive Pirates Foundation


The Dive Pirates Foundation has announced a dive equipment fundraiser garage sale.

The event is set to take place at the 8th Wonder Brewery and Distillery in Houston on October 9th, 2021. Currently, the foundation is training 15 new recipients for 2022. The foundation aims to continue in its mission to deliver life-changing experiences through the freedom of movement scuba delivers.

Commenting on the sale, Dive Pirates Foundation founder Barbara Thompson said:

“We thought it was fitting to get together at a great place with vittles and grog as well as music and pirates to raise some money for next year’s recipients. We know our pirates are anxious to get back to diving, that’s why we held a skills refresher day at The Scuba Ranch in May and this event in October to get together and have fun while raising money for our pirates in training.”

In addition, the foundation is seeking new recruits, and Thompson added:

“We are also in the midst of our membership drive, and anyone who comes to the event and purchases an auto-pirate bosun membership will receive a Dive Pirates embroidered visor. We hope all of our friends in the diving and non-diving community will come and have a great time with us and support adaptive diving and living fearlessly.”
