Beach Ball silent auction offers LXR getaways

By Staff | Oct 28, 2010

A customized Sanibel Sea Bag will be available at the Beach Ball silent auction.

The Beach Ball, a fundraiser for Children’s Education Center of the Islands, will be held on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Traders.

Accompanying the Beach Ball’s “Itty Bitty” live auction, which features child-sized chairs custom-decorated by local artists, will be a silent auction featuring a specially-designed Sanibel Sea Bag, photo sessions with island beach photographer Denise McKee and even Botox!

“We really wanted to think outside the box for the silent auction, and that’s how we came up with the Botox injections,” said Beach Ball chair Gaither DeLuca, whose son, Andrew, is a student at CECI.

In addition, LXR Sanibel & Captiva Island Resorts is donating a two night stay at Sundial Golf and Beach Resort, a two night stay at South Seas Island Resort, four foursomes at Dunes Golf and Tennis Club and a football party for 25 at Holy Smokes Heavenly BBQ on Captiva in Chadwick’s Square to the silent auction.

“Sundial Golf and Beach Resort, South Seas Island Resort and the other LXR properties are excited to be part of a non-profit organization that not only assists our community but enriches the lives of our future the kids,” said LXR Sanibel & Captiva Island Resorts Director of Area Sales Jason McKee. “The two to four year olds at the Children’s Education Center of the Islands will be the ones who benefit from all the hard work that the parents, teachers, volunteers and community businesses have put into making this event a huge success. We are proud to be a part of this year’s ‘Beach Ball’ fundraiser and are committed to continue to support future events.”

Tickets to the event cost $50, and include dinner, drinks and live entertainment.
