Our team has a passion to encourage consumers, local businesses and non-profits to seamlessly support each other in their local communities.
We have decades of experience in implementing unique & effective online and community outreach campaigns that offer much more promotion of our vendors and sponsors than the majority of "event planners".
The Benevolution Foundation is a 501c3 organization that is dedicated to raising awareness, effectiveness, and offering project funding for worthy locally focused nonprofit missions who are helping to build our communities stronger.
The Benevolution Foundation team has been involved in coaching nonprofit organizations for decades, and through the "Festivals For Good" opportunities that are offered at no-cost to the participating nonprofit organizations, we will be implementing all of the knowledge & experience that we've gained over the years towards strengthening the locally focused nonprofits who truly make a difference in our neighborhoods.
In 2019, the Shop Local For Good team expanded with the incredible entertainment production & musical talents of Darrell Autry of Smooth D & The Boyz.
Darrell's unwavering commitment to professionally produced & exceptionally entertaining shows, and his decades of experience in the industry were a welcome addition to our team, and we are looking forward to working with him at our 2020 "Festivals For Good".
Pirate Marketing is a team of local experts dedicated to helping small businesses navigate their marketing from stormy seas to smooth sailing.
From start to finish, they help craft and manage all traditional and digital marketing efforts, ultimately bringing more customers and revenue to our Shop Local For Good programs & "Festivals For Good".

In 2019, Shop Local For Good teamed up with the Vector VC team on streamlining our promotional strategy, and empowering our online presence with the guidance of their professionals.
We are working closely with them on growing even more online awareness of the 2020 "Festivals For Good".
Unlike the majority of "event promoters", the Shop Local For Good mission includes a heavy investment in proven promotional strategies that we've tested and have tracked as being a worthy investment for all of our community partners.

Why “Shop Local For Good”?
Shop Local For Good launched in 2017 as a family-owned business that organizes "family-friendly" events & programs for our neighbors to SAVE $$$ while "shopping local" with our small business neighbors who are known to help support worthy local nonprofits in our community. That's where the "For Good" comes into everything that we do... 😉
We launched this new program for two reasons:
1) Help support hard-working small business families in Tampa Bay
2) Offer neighbors their own “Shop Local” experience to be SAFELY DELIVERED to their door (or be sent as a gift!)
