In honor of The Watch Party, a fundraising event supporting the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s community-based marine conservation program Coastal Watch, Congress Jewelers has designed a custom diamond mangrove necklace.

The unique pendant, made of 14-karat gold, will be given away in a drawing at the Sept. 30 event. Although the event is sold out, anyone can purchase tickets for the drawing — $20 for one chance or $50 for three chances. The necklace has a retail value of $1,300. The design will be available at Congress Jewelers after the event and can be made with or without diamonds.

Additional supporting partners for The Watch Party include longtime SCCF supporters Bailey’s General Store and Superior Title Services of Sanibel, which were named Watch Sponsors of the event.

“Bailey’s has a rich history as SCCF’s partner in protecting the nature and wildlife on Sanibel, and the Johnson family continues to play a strong leadership role in supporting Coastal Watch initiatives. In addition, Superior Title Services has furthered SCCF’s mission by generously assisting our land acquisition efforts,” said SCCF CEO James Evans. “We’re pleased to see continued buy-in from the business community as stewards of our islands.”

Six additional Watch Sponsors include Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille, the Island Inn, South Seas Resort, the Gaudreau Family, Pete and Kriss Squibb, and Valerie Tutor Realtor/Kingfisher Real Estate.
