The deadline is quickly approaching for residents of Captiva to donate money for WGCU Public Media’s newest edition of “Untold Stories.”

“Paradise? Or Paradise Lost?” is the title of WGCU’s latest installment in the organization’s Untold Stories series, a collection of half-hour documentaries featuring various locations in Southwest Florida. This will be the first Untold Stories segment to feature Captiva Island.

A special event for the premier of this new documentary will take place on Saturday, Feb. 21 at the Captiva Civic Association, located at 11550 Chapin Lane, beginning at 5 p.m. If you have questions regarding the event, please contact the CCA.

All guests attending the event will receive a copy of the program on DVD as part of the $40 admittance fee.

Invitations with reservation information were sent out earlier this week, but those who would like to request an invitation may do so by calling the CCA at 472-2111.
