There’s never a shortage of things to do and new friends to meet at Fiddler’s Creek. Residents enjoy annual events such as themed dinner parties, entertainment-filled galas and concerts on the green. Plus, a long list of ever-changing activities including art workshops, happy hours, cooking demonstrations, family and kids’ events and more.
Fiddler’s Creek is a community that cares. Our residents, both seasonal and permanent, volunteer and support a number of worthwhile causes in the area. Below are just a few of the ways Fiddler’s Creek and our residents give back.
As part of its long-standing partnership with nearby Manatee Elementary School, Fiddler’s Creek supports an Annual Toy Drive. Each year, residents generously donate hundreds of gifts to help bring joy to deserving students during the holidays.
Each August, residents gather supplies to benefit students in need at our partner school, Manatee Elementary School.
Residents and their families look forward to our annual Thanksgiving morning 5K Turkey Trot. All proceeds from the event benefit our friends at Manatee Elementary School.
In 2015, Fiddler’s Creek held our first Volunteer Opportunity Day and it was so successful, it has now become an annual tradition. This event connects residents with local charitable organizations so they can learn about the various needs and volunteer opportunities in the area.
Other worthwhile organizations our residents donate their time and resources to include:
• Guadalupe Center
• St. Matthew’s House
• Humane Society of Naples
• Naples Botanical Garden
• Our Daily Bread Food Pantry
• Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve
• Conservancy of Southwest Florida
• Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
• The Shelter for Abused Women & Children
“There’s just a great social life here. You can do as much or as little as you want. There’s always something new and different to do.”
