Il Cielo is a Premier Sponsor of the 10th Annual 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H. on Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Sanibel Community House. As Sanibel's only foot race, it draws hundreds of runners from near and far every year.

We are a small team of passionate people and understand the importance of the services that F.I.S.H. provides for the people who live, work or visit Sanibel,” said Il Cielo’s General Manager Marcus Preece. “We are proud to be a supporter of the organization's mission and its 10K race.”

Il Cielo serves up creative American cuisine with a vast and varied menu that includes dishes from the sea, such as sesame crusted ahi tuna, and the land like rack of lamb with homemade mint jelly. Il Cielo won Best Seafood two consecutive years and Taste of the Taste at CROW’s annual Taste of the Islands. Diners should save room for a house-made dessert.

Il Cielo’s support of F.I.S.H. is greatly appreciated,” said Ed Ridlehoover, 10K Race committee member. “Their commitment to our community helps make it a better place.”

Join Il Cielo for the James Beard Foundation’s Celebrity Chef Tour at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 29. It brings a taste of what happens at the James Beard House in New York City to more than 20 cities across the country. The meal begins with a cocktail reception, includes signature dishes by six chefs and ends with a decadent dessert by Pastry Chef Lev Dalke, who graduated from The French Pastry School in Chicago.

The opportunity for us to host a second James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour is something we are looking forward to,” said Preece. “For just one night, we will be hosting award winning chefs from across the country who, in turn, put together a six-course meal that everyone can enjoy.”
