The Historic Anna Maria City Pier was dealt a mortal blow when Hurricane Irma pounded the island in September 2017.

The Pier celebrated its 100th Birthday in May of 2011, when "The Anna Maria Island Preservation Trust, Inc." presented the City with a State of Florida Historic Marker.

This marker details the significance of the Pier since it was built in 1911, to the development and settlement of the island before the first bridge was built, by ferrying people from Tampa, St. Petersburg and other settlements on theTampa Bay.

Those of us who live and work here, and the visitors who come to the Island, will have to wait while the City goes through the  machinations of permitting, funding, and rebuilding the pier.  It is estimated that the costs will run into the millions, all of which will not be realized with the funds the City is presently counting on through County, State, and Federal agencies.

That's where you come in:

The Anna Maria Isand Preservation Trust, Inc. (AMIPT) is a 501c3 charitable organization, enabling donations to be tax deductable, and even better, it will be MATCHED by the 1.5M grant from the Tourist Development Council of Manatee County.

Show your concern for this charming piece of history and spread the word to family and friends alike that you:  "LOVE The Historic Anna Maria City Pier!!!"

Thanks to all that have donated to this historical plea.
Many people do not realize that a matching grant means we only get money from TDC when each of you make a donation. So $25 will become $50 through the grant up to 1.5 M. It's a big carrot that's hard not to go for. Sissy Quinn
