Sanctuary Charity Classic to raise funds for F.I.S.H., CHR

By Staff | Dec 24, 2019


The 18th Annual Sanctuary Charity Classic will be held on Jan. 25 at The Sanctuary Golf Club.

For the past 17 years, the club has hosted a charity event in January, raising more than $1.6 million over the nearly two decades. The bulk of this year’s proceeds will go to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva and Community Housing and Resources to help support people in need who deserve a helping hand.

The newly-formed Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation, whose mission is to support nonprofits that positively impact the lives of people in need living or working on the islands and provide educational opportunity grants to Sanctuary employees and their families, will oversee the funds distribution.

“The Sanctuary Golf Club’s members and the Sanibel-Captiva community have warmly embraced this event with their exceptional generosity and commitment to this fundraiser,” General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Ken Kouril said. “The Sanctuary Charity Classic allows opportunities for the membership to contribute and support our community.”

There are sponsorship opportunities ranging from the $7,500 diamond partnership, which includes additional rounds of golf and dinner at the golf club, to a $500 event partner and a $250 hole sponsor.

“This event fills up quickly, so sign up your foursome early. There are non-playing sponsorship levels available if you do not play golf or cannot participate in the event,” Jim DiMarino said. “Your generosity goes to support the Sanibel-Captiva community.”

The event will begin at 11 a.m. with lunch, followed by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. At 5 p.m., a reception will be held in the clubhouse with cocktails and food stations, an awards presentation and the ever-popular Helicopter Drop.
