Octifest 2019 is sure to be a fun and festive event.
Guests at Octifest on the Beach 2019 will have the option to participate in an event-wide scavenger hunt to win an exciting grand prize. Octifest, held at 6:30 p.m. April 13 on the Causeway Island A, supports Sanibel Sea School’s scholarship program to provide ocean education for all, and helps the organization purchase much needed equipment and supplies.

During the fundraiser, those who would like to complete the scavenger hunt will be given a card with a checklist of fun trivia and tasks to complete. These might include questions about the ocean and our islands, wine tastings, group photo challenges, and more. 

“We wanted to do something new this year to make Octifest even more exciting for those who attend,” said event coordinator Chrissy Basturk. “We received so much positive feedback after our Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt last year, so we thought it would be a good idea to create a shorter, more adult oriented version for our annual celebration.” 

Basturk added that the grand prize has not yet been announced but will be shared soon via the organization’s social media channels. “Octifest provides the single largest influx of funds to support our mission and programs each year,” said Basturk. “We are so grateful to our community for making our work possible, and we hope you will join us for this night out for a very good cause.”

Octifest tickets are $150 per person and include a beautiful evening under a big top tent on Sanibel Causeway Island A complete with drinks, dinner, sunset views, live and silent auctions, the scavenger hunt, music, and more. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more or reserve your spot, please visit www.octifest.org or call (239) 472-8585.
