Community Housing and Resources announced that Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Bailey’s General Store and Pfeifer Realty Group are all manatee sponsors for its annual fundraiser, “Manatee Madness.” In addition, each business is hosting one of the manatee mailbox sculptures that were transformed into unique works of art by local award-winning artists. The public can find Peter Zell’s “Marvelous Mr. Manatee” at Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, at 2408 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel; Ginny Dickinson’s “Manatee Mer” at Bailey’s, at 2477 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel; and Joan Tangren Reynolds’ “Blue M” at Pfeifer Realty Group, at 1630 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. The sculptures are scheduled to be auctioned off to the highest bidders at a “walk-through” event on April 11 at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village.
