Mark Walsh of the Opal Collection awarded Sister Season Fund a $25,000 grant during a recent Key West Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours mixer at the new Capitana Key West Resort on North Roosevelt Boulevard.

Executive director Julie Hanson accepted the check on behalf of the nonprofit organization that helps qualified locals by paying utility bills and/or rent when they are temporarily unable to work through no fault of their own. 

The fund has awarded over $400,000 in grants since the pandemic began.
