In a benefit for the Conch Republic Foster Children’s Fund administered by Wesley House Family Services, Rick’s/Durty Harry’s, 202 Duval St, past queen, Leigha Fox and current queen Julie Waters will host the Royal Investiture Party to elect a Royal Family for the Conch Republic on Saturday, April 22nd starting at 6 p.m. Funds raised each year to pay for special items for foster children in Monroe County like, prom dresses, class rings, sports uniforms and equipment, and other items not covered by state dollars. No funds are used for administrative expenses, but go directly to the foster children in need.

Claim your position in the Conch Republic Family. Any serious or silly rank or position is acceptable, except King, Mel Fisher will always be King. In the event of multiple candidates for the lofty position of Queen and because there can only be one Queen of the Conch Republic, the candidate earning the most votes will assume the title of Queen. Others will be deemed “Queen(s) in Waiting.” Past positions have been held as Royal Bartender, Duchess of the Conch Republic , Royal Chaplain, Earl of Pizza, “Royal Bubblier, and Royal Banker .

Wesley House asks the community to rise to the challenge by running as a Royal Family candidate! To request an application for candidacy or for more information, please visit or contact Claire Hiller at, or call 305-809-5000. You may begin to raise funds immediately, after receipt of application.
