A FantaSea Cruise: The Captain’s Ball

The Animal Welfare League’s Captain’s Ball…A “Fantasea” Cruise set sail on its maiden voyage with more than 500 passengers on board the SS AWL. As passengers walked the gangway into the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center ballroom, they were magically transported onto a vintage cruise ship, with John Wright of the Punta Gorda Chamber serving as Cruise Director and Captain Ralph Allen of the Kingfisher Fleet as special guest captain. The evening raised much needed funds for the Animal Welfare League’s mission of caring for unwanted, abused and homeless animals.
