The Conquistador Historical Foundation distributes grants to local community charities, particularly those with youth educational programming initiatives.
Through a generous donation by De Soto member Art Engelhardt, we maintain an annual student exchange program with Barcarrota, Spain (Bradenton’s Sister City).
We offer college scholarships to our De Soto Queen & Princess as well as the 10 young ladies, ages 18-24, who annually serve on the De Soto Queen's Court.
It was great to see the Crewe at our Miracle League of Manasota baseball game on Saturday. My son enjoyed going on the ship and getting his picture taken with the Royalty. As a long-time Bradenton dude, it’s great to have the Crewe of De Soto active in our special needs community (Buddy Walk and the Miracle League). It is appreciated.
