The Anna Maria Island Privateers are working to raise at least $40,000 for charitable work in 2011, which is the nonprofit’s 40th year. To reach that goal, AMIP is seeking sponsors for its events, including the thieves markets at Coquina Beach, Snooks Adams Kids Day, the July 4 parade and a Labor Day Pirate Fest. AMIP also is seeking sponsors for its commemorative coins, as well as selling some bling. Sparkly medallions or pins are retailing for $20. For more information, call Tim “Hammer” Thompson at 941-780-1668.
