Among the multitude of activities on tap during the end-of-the-year shindig include games “4” children and “4” adults, a 50/50 raffle drawing (half of the proceeds go to the winner, half of the proceeds going to the city’s Recreational Assistance Fund), a display of artwork created by students from The Sanibel School and bingo “4” adults.

Bingo participants must be 18 or older, with only 100 seats available. Fabulous prizes include gift certificates at restaurants, hotel stays, golf outings, boat rides and more. Prizes are valued in excess of $4,000. Cost in advance is $50 per chair, which includes admission and two bingo cards. At-the-door cost is $60.

Admission to the party includes fantasic food and refreshments such as chicken fingers, pizza, hot dogs, cold cut platters, veggie trays, fruit, sushi, chips, pretzels, popcorn, soda, water, juices, root beer floats, ice cream, cake, coffee and tea.

Each admission also receives a chance to win a door prize. Party hats and noisemakers are included, too.

The price for tickets to the City of Sanibel’s New Year’s Eve Party is $10 per person in advance or $15 at the door. Children age 4 and under are admitted free and must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets may be purchased at the Sanibel Recreation Center.

All proceeds from this event are donated to the City of Sanibel Recreation Center Financial Assistance Program to assist workers who financially qualify for their children to attend the after school program, summer day camp and fun days at the Sanibel Recreation Center. This is a family-friendly, alcohol- and tobacco-free event.
