A Word from Cypress Cove’s General Manager

Nude-A-Palooza: A Decade of Music, Community, and Compassion

As the General Manager of Cypress Cove Nudist Resort in Central Florida, I am thrilled to share the remarkable success of our annual event, Nude-A-Palooza. This one-day tribute concert series, dedicated to celebrating the joy of music and community, has consistently proven its philanthropic power year after year.

The two most recent installments of Nude-A-Palooza were particularly heartwarming, as we had the privilege of contributing to a cause close to our hearts—the Florida Cancer Specialist Foundation. This year, together, with the collective efforts of our generous guests, donors, and the welcoming residents of Cypress Cove, we raised an impressive $22,157.

However, this year's accomplishment is not a standalone success; it is part of a journey that began in 2008. Since its inception, Nude-A-Palooza has been instrumental in channeling support to various charitable organizations, raising an awe-inspiring total of $332,240. This incredible sum embodies the compassion, unity, and philanthropic spirit that are at the heart of Nude-A-Palooza.

We owe our deepest gratitude to the many people who have made this remarkable achievement possible. Our cherished guests, who travel from near and far, bring with them not only their love for music but also their unwavering commitment to making a difference. We are thankful to our generous donors whose contributions have consistently fueled the success of this event and have touched the lives of countless individuals.

Equally deserving of our appreciation are the residents of Cypress Cove. We recognize the unique synergy that comes from welcoming an event like Nude-A-Palooza into our own backyard. Your open hearts and warm embrace of this tradition have helped build a bridge between our community and the causes we hold dear.

Let's not forget the dedicated Cypress Cove teams who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make Nude-A-Palooza a reality. Countless hours are spent planning, organizing, and ensuring the smooth operation of this event, and their commitment is truly inspiring.

In addition to the incredible generosity of our guests, donors, and the Cypress Cove community, I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to a few remarkable contributors. Bare Necessities, for their outstanding support, gifted us a week-long cruise that added a truly unforgettable dimension to our fundraising efforts. SouthState Bank, your amazing gift basket was a delightful surprise that added joy to our event.

The Spa Oasis at Cypress Cove, Nature Hair, and Cloudpoint Hospitality also deserve special recognition for their donations to our raffle, which not only enhanced the event's excitement but also enriched the lives of those who participated. Your kindness and commitment to our cause have touched our hearts deeply, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in creating a brighter future for our chosen charities. 

As we celebrate a decade of giving through Nude-A-Palooza, we are reminded of the positive change that can be achieved when we come together as a community. This event showcases the transformative power of music, love, and unity, and we are excited to continue this remarkable journey in the years to come.

Thank you to all who have been a part of this incredible endeavor. Your contributions, in all forms, have not only made Nude-A-Palooza a success but have also made a profound impact on those in need. Together, we have proven that music, charity, and the spirit of giving can truly change lives.

General Manager

Herman's Cheesecakes for a Cause - A Sweet Success!

With deep appreciation, we extend our warmest thanks to our cherished residents and guests who played a pivotal role in making our charity cheesecake bake sale an extraordinary success. Herman, our beloved bartender and a true maestro in the art of crafting cheesecakes surpassed all expectations with his delectable homemade creations. It brings us immense joy to share that this event stands as a record-breaking achievement in our fundraising journey.

The outpouring of support was nothing short of astounding. Herman's tantalizing assortment of flavored cheesecakes was a crowd-pleaser, leaving everyone yearning for more. What truly warms our hearts is the remarkable generosity exhibited by our community, as together we raised a grand total of $4,082! These funds, when combined with the proceeds from Nude-A-Palooza, will be channeled toward the noble cause of the Florida Cancer Specialist Foundation. By doing so, we directly contribute to easing the financial burdens faced by cancer patients.

But that's not all; Herman went the extra mile by organizing an exhilarating raffle featuring an array of fantastic prizes, from TVs to shirts, bags, and various breast cancer-related items. The raffle not only added to the event's festive spirit but also provided an opportunity for everyone to partake in this admirable cause.

For those who were unable to join us in person, virtual cheesecake purchases proved to be a fantastic way to contribute. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all who participated, whether on-site or from afar, for showing their unwavering support.

We are thrilled to share that the total amount raised through Herman's exceptional cheesecake efforts has now reached an impressive $29,419. Herman's dedication and love, not only for his craft but for our community, have been truly outstanding.

Every contribution, regardless of its size, plays a significant role in making a difference, and collectively, your efforts have had a profound impact on the fight against breast cancer.

Cypress Cove is immensely grateful for your involvement in this remarkable journey of spreading love, hope, and the sheer joy of cheesecake. Your continued support holds immense value, and we are eager to continue making an even greater impact in the future.

Together, we can and will make a difference!

Don't Forget About the ANRL

What if your favorite nudist resort vanished? What if you were denied access to a clothing-optional beach? What if you could not own a nudist magazine? What if there were no American Nudist Research Library?

The ANRL preserves the stories of those who were arrested for being nude or topless on beaches.  On the shelves are tales of people such as Maurice Parmalee who was stopped at customs for bringing in five copies of his own book, because the book contained several unretouched nude photographs. The library has a copy of Russel Knutson’s fourth application for parole after he was imprisoned for selling nudist magazines through the U.S. Mail. The library also contains histories of nudist resorts, such as Cypress Cove.

Freedom is never to be taken for granted. Thankfully, we have the ANRL, so we can learn and remember how our freedom to enjoy the lifestyle we love was obtained. To experience, enjoy, and support this effort, become a friend of the library. For more information drop by the library.
