Sun City Center Community News

Join the cruise

Members of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church of Sun City Center, 1239 Del Webb Blvd. W., are excited about a cruise they’re taking and want the public to join them.

Departure is from Tampa on Nov. 30 for one week on the Carnival Pride. The ship will visit Costa Maya, Belize, Mahogany Bay and Grand Cayman.

Participants will have the opportunity to begin their two days at sea with morning worship and Bible study. The Rev. Mark Salmon will lead both. The experience is optional. You can sleep in or play, if you wish.

Joann Cunningham of AAA is handling all bookings, so give her a call at (813) 633-4880 to get more information, place a deposit or ask insurance questions. The current rates for reserved, inside cabin rooms are $606.67 per person, including taxes and fees, and $813.67 for a balcony cabin. Other rooms are available, and Cunningham can provide their prices.

Macy’s to support Good Samaritan Mission

Macy’s and Good Samaritan Mission of Wimauma invite customers to participate in Macy’s ninth annual, national Shop For A Cause charity event on Aug. 23. Created in 2006, the special one-day-only shopping event supports the fundraising efforts of local charities and has helped raise more than $44 million across the country. Local customers can participate in this year’s event by purchasing shopping passes from Good Samaritan Mission now.

The passes sell for $5 each, and the mission gets to keep 100 percent of each one it sells. The pass entitles customers to a day of “spectacular” discounts, entertainment and special events at Macy’s. Special discounts will be offered on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day. Some exclusions may apply.
