Mardi Gras maskCHR announces date for annual Mardi Gras event

Sanibel’s Community Housing and Resources, Inc. (CHR) is pleased to announce the date of its third annual CHR Mardi Gras event, which will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club on Sanibel.

“We’re in our third year with this event,” said Kelly Collini, CHR’s executive director, “and it just keeps getting better. People like being able to celebrate Mardi Gras right here on Sanibel, and we’re giving them a chance to do it while supporting a good cause at the same time.”

CHR wants to get the message out early about the event date so that people can plan ahead. “With so many great events happening and so many fun things to do on and around Sanibel, we want to get onto your calendar now,” said CHR’s development committee chairman Tim Garmager. “This year’s event is going to be bigger, better, and packed with fun—something that you won’t want to miss.”

CHR’s Mardi Gras is the organization’s signature fundraising event. Everyone is invited, and proceeds support CHR’s mission of providing affordable housing on Sanibel for island workers and for disabled and retired residents. Event details and ticket information will be available at by late 2014.
