John Carney, a member of the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club, announced on Monday that a one-of-a-kind T-shift, autographed by legendary local artist Ikki Matsumoto, is being raffled off, with proceeds going to the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation.

Matsumoto has signed the long-sleeved garment, which features his iconic anhinga artwork on the back, adding the inscription “Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club” on one sleeve and “Arts & Crafts Fair Feb. 23 & 24, 2011” on the other. The shirt has been professionally framed and measures 38 inches by 40 inches.
