Sanibel Sea School will host the first annual Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, November 3rd at 10:30 AM. The island-wide scavenger hunt will be full of laughs and fun challenges for participants of all ages and will end with a bonfire celebration on the beach. All proceeds from the event will support the organization's scholarship fund to provide meaningful ocean experiences to those in need.

Congress Jewelers has joined the event as a sponsor and will offer a bonus clue for all participating children. Young participants will be invited to visit the Congress Jewelers store at Periwinkle Place Shopping Center during the month after the scavenger hunt to receive an ocean-themed gift. "We are a family run business, and we are happy to support such a family-friendly event on the island," said business owner Melissa Congress.

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. Event tickets are $25 per participant, and individual and business sponsorship opportunities are still available. To learn more and sign up, please call (239) 472-8585 or visit
