The Community House will host its annual 1927 Gala on Jan. 31 starting at 5:30 p.m.

Sanibel’s finest chefs and restaurants will come together to make it an unforgettable event. Attendees will enjoy appetizers passed by their favorite servers from up and down the island. Eight restaurants and catering companies have generously offered special bites to tantalize everyone’s appetites.

While a quartet plays in the background, attendees will make their way into the Great Hall. From there, they will be treated to a four-course seated meal, accompanied by fine wine and beer. Returning to the roots of The Community House, four chefs will come together to provide a unique meal.

The meal will open with a salad provided by Melissa Donahue, one of her favorites that she has honed over the years. Loretta Paganini will take attendees back to her hometown with a pasta dish she used to make with her grandmother. Resident Chef Jarred will share his love of “field to fork,” including two proteins and locally-sourced vegetables. It will conclude with Malia Samson’s dessert created just for the gala using honey from the island.

Tickets are $150 per person. Sponsorships are also still available.
