CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Local organizations are teaming up to help sea turtles in need.

Manjarris Realty Group with Keller Williams is sponsoring the Sea Turtle Fundraiser Friday, which benefits the Amos Rehabilitation Keep.

A donation drive will take place from 5-8:30 p.m. at Lazy Beach Brewery, located at 7522 Bichon #100 in Corpus Christi.

The ARK will also bring an animal for people to meet, but if you can't make it to the event, organizers said there are other ways to help.

"If you can't donate we actually have a QR code and a site you can go to to donate to the ARK," said Hazel Manjarris with Keller Williams Realty Group, an event sponsor. "Twenty dollars helps rehabilitate a sea turtle for a month. It helps feed them and give them their antibiotics."

Organizers say items needed include the following:

  • Ziplock bags
  • Aluminum foil
  • Dip nets
  • Pool noodles
  • Boogie boards
  • Flat sheets
  • Towels (all sizes)
  • Detergent
  • Bleach
  • Dish Washing Liquid

Anyone who donates Friday will get also free Southside Tacos, courtesy of Kimberely Harrington with Farmers Insurance.

"We've had a lot of great community involvement, so we're really excited to see people and give them free tacos for donating to this wonderful cause," said Manjarris.
