The Sanctuary Charity Classic is set for Saturday, Jan. 25 and The Sanctuary Golf Club invites you to participate in this charitable golf event. Lunch begins at 11 a.m., with a 12:30 p.m. Shotgun, followed at 5:30 p.m. with a grand Reception with elaborate food stations and cocktails.

Proceeds from this season’s Sanctuary Charity Classic will benefit the newly established 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 majority of funds raised at this year’s event will benefit F.I.S.H. and Community Housing & Resources.

“The Sanctuary Golf Club’s Members overwhelmingly embrace this event, allowing the course to be closed to just this event. They are exceptionally generous and committed to this fundraiser and the human needs on Sanibel and Captiva.”, said Ken Kouril, Chief Operating Officer of The Sanctuary Golf Club.

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 – the $2,500 Gold Partnership – a $500 Event Partner, which includes two tickets to the Reception – to a $250 Hole Sponsorship. “Thank You” to those who have already sponsored.
