The Key West Chapter of the Sunset Social Drinking Club was born in October of 2010 with the purpose of creating and strengthening relationships and professional friendships - all within a relaxed and fun atmosphere. About 9 times a year the members and friends of the SSDC gather at a local business (I.E. a hotel, restaurant, bar, or other awesome venue) to support our community, our sponsors, and to promote our host venue. The SSDC is all about lending a helping hand! We raise money for selected local lower Keys charities while celebrating island life - which includes cocktailing, enjoying hors d'oeuvres, and entertainment with friends.
100% of our proceeds go to charity, and the benefactors collect their money immediately after each SSDC event. The SSDC members are proud to know that our organization has raised over $200,000 for various local charities. The Sunset Social Drinking Club is proud to be the driving force behind POSH (Paws Often Steal Hearts), a fundraiser for the FKSPCA, which is usually held the first Thursday in December. Last year at the 7th Annual POSH fundraiser, the SSDC raised over $20,000.
But we don't stop there, some other charities we have donated to are:
The Golden Paws Project • FIRM (Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe County) • Friends of Luci (supporting and protecting homeless animals) • Reef Relief • FKCC Scholarship Fund • NOLA Girl Pet Adoption Fund • MARC House • Montessori Charter School • Boys & Girls Club of Key West • Florida Keys T.R.E.E. Institute • Horses of Mounted KW Police • Save a Turtle • Mote Marine Laboratory • Key West Gay-Straight Alliance Scholarship Fund for Key West High School • American Youth Soccer Organization • Just 4 Kids Monroe County Schools Art Program • Protect Our Reefs • Sister Season Fund • Key West Hospice Care • Autism Blue • Kids Come First • Members of the Community in Need
Captain Beauregard & Nola Girl Pet Adoption Fund SPCA

The Captain Beauregard & Nola Girl Pet Adoption Fund was created for the animals that are the longest tenants in the Florida Keys SPCA. This fund will pay for all the residents needs, and aid in finding them a happy home. We wish for ALL the animals to to have an equal chance of finding companionship and a loving family. From my personal experience, animals know and appreciate being given a second chance. Because of you, their freedom will fill their hearts and drive away their emptiness. 100% of this fund will ensure the lives of these pure hearts. You can't do everything, but you can do something - a little change goes the long way. Thank you for your miracle.
