“CHR is one of the most important aspects of our Sanibel community,” said Mardi Gras event co-chair Arlene Dillon. “We house dozens of families and Sanibel friends who are the backbone of our community, working in the service industry and for several other local businesses, organizations, and local government. We know that this year’s Mardi Gras will not only be a great time, but will raise much needed funds to renovate and maintain many of our homes.”

Aside from being CHR’s signature fundraising event, CHR’s Mardi Gras gives Sanibel residents and visitors a chance to celebrate the New Orleans tradition with a dollop of Sanibel, Florida flair. Attendees will enjoy a stroll down “Bourbon Street,” dine on genuine New Orleans fare, and even get to cheer for their favorite team as our top event sponsors compete in a fun and zany swim relay. Proceeds will support CHR’s mission of providing affordable housing on Sanibel for island workers and for long-time island residents who have become disabled or retired.

“One main goal this year is to raise enough money to completely renovate one of the 20 plus units that need updating,” said co-chair Melissa Rice. “We are especially grateful to long-time Sanibel residents Lena Brown and Brenda Harrity, who will be organizing a ‘give to give’ table where you can purchase specific items to help us do that—everything from a ceiling fan to the kitchen floor.”
