Giving Back

Giving Back

Our family is committed to giving back to many causes and organizations in our area, and frequently host charitable functions at the four Anna Maria Oyster Bar locations.  

Not only do we throw great events, we are proud to participate in many local events for wonderful not-for-profits, professional organizations and fundraisers in our community. We love giving back!

John and his wife Amanda also host (along with friends Stewart & Trudy Moon) the Horne & Moon Social.  This annual event raises funds for need-based scholarships for adults change their lives by returning to school at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, State College of Florida and Manatee Technical College. The Horne & Moon Scholarship Fund is administrated by Manatee Community Foundation.
