SANIBEL, Florida – December 30, 2014 – With New Year celebrations now in the past, party lovers turn their thoughts to the next big bash, and CHR (Community Housing and Resources, Inc.) is happy to accommodate with its upcoming Mardi Gras fund raising event. At just $55 per person, tickets can be purchased at the CHR office located at 2401 Library Way, Bailey’s General Store, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, The Sanibel Café, and also online at SanibelCHR.org/Mardi Gras. The event will be held on February 7 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club on Sanibel.
Presented by Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, CHR’s Mardi Gras is being described as an event that is not an average non-profit fundraiser. “Of course it is our annual fund raiser,” said CHR executive director Kelly Collini, “and we certainly do depend on the generosity of donors in supporting CHR’s affordable housing program, but CHR’s Mardi Gras is also about community—bringing people together to have a good time. It’s Mardi Gras after all!”
Planned to coincide with the famous New Orleans Mardi Gras week, CHR’s February 7 event will bring a sample of Fat Tuesday to Sanibel. “We have some different things planned for this year,” Collini hinted. “Our Mardi Gras committee wanted to take the third annual event to the next level, so we added some activities that are designed to get people up and mingling while enjoying the food and entertainment.”
CHR’s Mardi Gras guests will be treated to authentic Cajun food, festive music, games, a Chinese auction, a costume contest, great prizes, and Mardi Gras themed fun. Call CHR at 239-472-1189 for more ticket and event details, or visit online at SanibelCHR.org/Mardi Gras.
