Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally dropped into the Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute back in March:

The biennial Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute started with a literal bang at its dinner dance, which took place March 30 at The Mar-a-Lago Club.

Rebecca Williams was chairwoman for the evening, which, after the SEAL drop, moved to the ballroom where Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally performed a moving God Bless America before they, too, slipped off unseen into the night. Margery McCloskey and Jane Woodman were co-chairwomen.

The evening also included dinner and remarks from Jessica Buchanan, a kidnapped aid worker who was rescued by SEALs, and from Rear Adm. Scott Moore, who commanded several rescue operations in Afghanistan and off the coast of Somalia.

More than 650 people attended the event, which raised more than $1 million for the Navy SEAL Foundation and for the Navy SEAL Museum, Trident House and Memorial.

Buffett Performs on Steps of Florida Capitol

Jimmy Buffett was in Tallahassee Tuesday morning and performed an acoustic set with Robert Greenidge and Mac McAnally as part of the Everglades Action Day rally at the state capitol.

Buffett also met with members of the Florida state senate while he was in town:

The Tallahassee Democrat has more on the rally:

Environmentalists from across Florida are expected to make their way to the Capitol to push for efforts to save the Everglades, including a proposed state purchase of thousands of acres of land south of Lake Okeechobee owned by U.S. Sugar.

Eric Eikenberg, CEO of the Everglades Coalition, said the organization is asking lawmakers to purchase 46,800 acres of land to store and treat water from Lake Okeechobee, which is polluted by farming activities. Right now, the U.S. Corps of Engineers diverts billions of gallons of water from the lake to the west and east, into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers, causing toxic algae outbreaks, health warnings, fish kills, job losses and depressed home values, he said.

By buying the land, the water could return to its natural flow south, recharging the aquifer that supplies drinking water to eight million Floridians. Buying the land would cost an estimated $350 million to $500 million. An option for the state to buy the land expires on Oct. 12.

Next month Jimmy Buffett will perform an acoustic set in Tallahassee as part of the third annual Everglades Action Day.

The singer-songwriter, who often dips his toes into the waters of politics, will appear at a rally to “Save Florida’s Drinking Water” hosted by the Everglades Coalition. Everglades Action Day brings Floridians to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers on the importance of the Everglades, which provides about 8 million Floridians with drinking water. Buffett will appear with fellow musicians Mac McAnally and Robert Greenidge.

It will be Buffett’s second appearance in Tallahassee within the past year. In October, he played a show for supporters of U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham during her congressional campaign.
