Florida’s October Volunteer of the Month!

October Volunteer of the Month: Robert “Kap” Kaplinger

Robert-Kaplinger-191x300Congratulations to our October Volunteer of the month, Robert “Kap” Kaplinger! Kap is a member of the Central Florida Chapter. As an all star volunteer, he single-handedly organized a cleanup of Playalinda Beach that featured an after-party at Cracker Jacks in Titusville.

Kap also organized a fundraising raffle and scored the chapter premium event tabling space at Earthday Birthday- even bringing one of the featured bands to hang out at the table to sell raffle tickets and promote beach cleanups. In this role, Kap created all the marketing materials and secured multiple raffle prizes from various vendors including a custom shaped board with the clean up flyer glassed into the deck. Thanks to Kap’s work, the Central Florida Chapter raised over $500! Chapter Chair Tim Orrange commented, “The event’s success was all Kap’s doing, we just provided support. He continues to be one of our most active core members and is constantly coming up with ideas and support.” Thank you for all that you do for the Central Florida Chapter and the Surfrider Foundation
