F.I.S.H. (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel is fundraising with a drawing for a Bertolucci Voglia ladies watch, was which was generously donated by Lily & Co. to help raise money for FISH.

The watch, as described by Lily & Co., features an elegant slim face, encrusted with 116 full cut diamonds in FGH color and VVS clarity. The watch has Swiss quartz movement; is water resistant to 100 feet and has a black varnished calf leather strap on stainless steel pin buckle. It is a truly beautiful jewelry piece and retails for $6,500.
