Margaritaville hosts benefit for club
Keys area Boys and Girls Clubs benefited from Howard Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band’s 13th annual “One Particular Harbor” concert at Margaritaville on Duval Street last Sunday. All the money raised stays in the community to support youth programs.
Dan Hatch, Monroe County Clerk of Court Amy Heavilin, Marta Gore, and Howard’s wife, Cyndy Livingston, are singing along to the song and enjoying an evening that supports local children.
Marc and Tammy Hollander from the Coconut Castaways, Artist Koz, Cheryl Johnson, and Joanne and Scott Cates gather at a table. The 400-plus members of Southernmost Coconut Castaway members do a ton of volunteer — logging more than 1,000 hours last year.

Donna Vain and Roxie Gillespie of Big Pine Key are big Howard fans. They try to make it most of his events.
Key Westers Lisa, Stephanie, Austin and Emily enjoy the music and the cause. Stephanie Griffiths became a fan after hearing Howard play on the barge at Snipes Point. ‘He’s so generous,’ she said.
