Sanibel Sea School’s annual fundraiser, Octifest on the Beach, will be at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13. The 501c3 nonprofit organization invites community members to attend in celebration of their efforts to provide meaningful ocean experiences to thousands of children in our region each year. The event committee is planning a very fun evening for guests.
 
The event is unique among island fundraisers for its bayside location on Causeway Island A, where guests are treated to cocktails with sunset views over San Carlos Bay and an evening of stargazing. There will also be music, a delicious and sustainable dinner, and a variety of opportunities to support the school’s ocean conservation mission, along with a few other surprises.
 
“We depend on Octifest as our largest source of funds to support our outreach and scholarship programs each year,” said the school’s Executive Director, Dr. Bruce Neill. “We are so grateful for our community members, who have made it possible for us to help so many students explore the ocean each year, who otherwise might not have that opportunity.”
 
Sanibel Sea School’s mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more about Octifest, including sponsorship opportunities, or to purchase tickets, visit www.octifest.org or call (239) 472-8585.
