Fundraiser planned for island local
F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva is organizing a “Friends of Ed” fundraiser on Feb. 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post 123 on Sanibel, with the proceeds to benefit island local Ed Augustyn.
Augustyn has been battling cancer for two years, including going to the Moffitt Cancer Center every other week. His family has been unable to make the minimum payments required by the center.
Proceeds from the event will be used toward Augustyn’s medical expenses.
The fundraiser will feature live music, a silent auction and barbecue, served by the Legion.
Donations are being sought for the auction.
For more information or to donate an item, contact Heidi at 973-714-4268.
American Legion Post 123 is at 4929 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel.
