“Craig Albert and his team at Sanibel Captiva Community Bank have been extremely important supporters of Community Housing and Resources,” said CHR executive director Kelly Collini. “They are instrumental in helping CHR with our banking needs. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank has also helped many of our limited equity home owners secure loans and manage their income, and have made themselves available to help whenever we call. Their support is vital to our organization.”

CHR’s Mardi Gras will give Sanibel residents and visitors a chance to celebrate the New Orleans tradition with Sanibel flair. Attendees will enjoy an evening on “Bourbon Street” with live music, open bar, fun acts, and delicious New Orleans street fare along with the chance to directly help CHR renovate an older housing unit at our “Give to Give” table.

“This year, the Mardi Gras will feature our first ‘Swim for the Beads’ relay, and the San-Cap Community Bank has signed on as the Gold Team! You will have the opportunity to purchase gold beads the week leading up to and during the event to support the Gold Team and even win some prizes,” said Mardi Gras co-chair Arlene Dillon. “The winning team gets to pick prizes for supporters—you win if they win—so buying gold beads and cheering them on is a must!”

CHR appreciates the support of our community, including our Premier Sponsor, The Sanibel Catering Company by Bailey’s, and our Presenting Sponsor, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. Proceeds for the event support CHR’s mission of providing affordable housing on Sanibel. All donations to CHR are tax deductible.
