provided to Santiva Chronicle

For the past 17 years The Sanctuary Golf Club has hosted a Charity event in January and during that time has raised more than $1.6 million dollars. This year’s event will be held on Jan. 25 and the bulk of its proceeds will be granted to FISH and Community Housing & Resources, for those people in need who deserve a helping hand.

There are a broad spectrum of sponsorship opportunities for golfers and non-golfers alike, ranging from the $7,500 Diamond Partnership, which includes additional rounds of golf and dinner at The Sanctuary Golf Club – a $500 Event Partner, which includes two tickets to the Reception – to a $250 Hole Sponsorship. All proceeds go directly to the newly formed Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation, whose mission is to support nonprofits that positively impact the lives of people in need living or working on Sanibel or Captiva, and to provide educational opportunity grants to Sanctuary employees and their families.

“The Sanctuary Golf Club’s Members and the Sanibel-Captiva community have warmly embraced this event with their exceptional generosity and commitment to this fundraiser. The Sanctuary Charity Classic allows opportunities for the Membership to contribute and support our community,” said Ken Kouril, General Manager & COO of The Sanctuary Golf Club.

Jim DiMarino continued, “This event fills up quickly, so sign up your foursome early. There are non-playing sponsorship levels available, if you do not play golf or cannot participate in the event. Your generosity goes to support the Sanibel – Captiva community.”

The Sanctuary Charity Classic begins at 11 a.m. with Lunch followed by a 12:30 p.m. Shotgun start. At 5 p.m. a reception will be held at the clubhouse with cocktails and elaborate food stations, an awards presentation, and the ever-popular Helicopter Drop. The community’s participation is welcomed and encouraged. For more information about The Sanctuary Charity Classic, contact Jim DiMarino at 239.472.6223 or
