Sonny Flynn, is one of the busiest ladies I have had the privilege to speak with. She is a three time cancer survivor who never lets her past interfere with her bright busy future. She’s involved with many events throughout Pinellas County, from small events like the Christmas fishing tournament for kids in Madeira Beach to the Seafood Festival at John’s Pass. Sonny is a Promoter of Tourism, Event Coordinator and an Alligator Wrestler. Each year she gives a demonstration with very large gators to raise money for the charities she supports.
Her goal this year is to have John’s Pass Seafood Festival become the largest Seafood event in North America. As you listen to Sonny’s so passionately speak about the festivals and events she chairs, you can’t help but want to become involved to help her reach this goal. “We have the best seafood in the United States, we need to be number one” says Sonny. “We are also the Grouper Capital of the world.”
A native Floridian who can’t help but promote the lifestyle of Florida. Her tip for those thinking about moving to Florida and for those who already call Florida home, is to remember “we live in a play State, be a tourist.”
