Cracker Fest set on Nov. 2

By Staff | Sep 28, 2012

The Sanibel-Captiva chapter of START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide) announces the fourth annual celebration of the SanCap Cracker Fest, featuring a grand evening of dining, dancing to the music of Danny Morgan and his Apple Butter Band, and enjoying the extraordinary good company of friends and family – cracker style!

A live auction and raffles add to the evening’s enjoyment at the Bait Box on Periwinkle Way, with additional highlights to be announced.

The laid-back atmosphere of the Cracker Fest celebrates Florida’s cultural legacy while raising awareness and financial support for our START chapter’s mission to promote healthy beaches and waterways through educational, scientific, and marine habitat/species preservation and restoration.

We also team with F.I.S.H. to help those in need on our islands while we are gathered. Included in this year’s festivities is an authentic Cracker Feast of Wayne’s wild pig and Ralph’s fried and smoked mullet – with all the trimmings, including Esperanza’s biscuits, scrumptious dessert, ice cold beer and wine.

Cracker Fest begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 on The Bait Box property on Sanibel. Tickets are $100 per person, which include admittance to the event, dinner, beer and wine, entertainment, live auction and a complimentary raffle ticket.

Admission to SanCap Cracker Fest is by reservation only and limited to the first 300 attendees. For tickets or more information, contact Jean Woodring at 239-284-6067 or email sancapcrackerfest@yahoo.com.
