Reservations are open for the 18th annual A Peek at the Unique, the home tour and signature fund raiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva and the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida.

Set for March 16, the event promises to be a sought-after day out for islanders, seasonal residents and visitors. Previous “Peekers” received an early-bird opportunity to purchase tickets in early January.

Tickets are available through EventBrite at www.EventBrite.com.

“This is our second year of using EventBrite for reservations, and we have found that our guests appreciate the ability to choose their departure time and to enjoy a safe and transparent purchase process,” Peek Chair Susan Tucker said.

Tickets are $100, plus a small service fee to EventBrite.

Choose from available departure times every half hour beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The familiar, guided tour of four island homes, each reliably described as “unique,” takes about three hours. As a Peeker, ride comfortably on an air-conditioned bus with an experienced tour attendant, learning details about each home visited. Prior to boarding, enjoy refreshments from island restaurants and caterers.

Proceeds from the 2018 Peek topped previous records. Through its foundation, the club plans to distribute $105,000 in grants to local organizations that focus on empowering women and girls, and to pledge $35,000 to Zonta International for global initiatives targeting women’s health, economic independence, and freedom from violence and slavery. Funds come from ticket sales, business sponsorships, individual benefactors, the raffle “Six Chances at the Unique” and other innovations.
