“SanCap Cares has made an enormous and positive impact for Southwest Florida families for more than two decades,” said Willy Ocasio, Bank of the Islands Vice President and Sanibel-Captiva Office Manager. “They are all set to throw the islands’ best virtual cocktail party, and we are honored to be supporting the event as a Patron.”

Guests are invited to join in on the festivities from the comfort of their own homes. The event will include tapas and cocktails, and music by The Modern Gentlemen. Silent and live auctions will round out the evening and raise funds for the hospital.

“This year’s goal is to fund a new pediatric ambulance,” said Ocasio. “We encourage all island neighbors and visitors to participate and help make this dream come true.”
