“The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company is proud to support and sponsor CHR’s signature fundraiser this year,” said Al Hanser, founder and chairman of The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. “We look forward to the Mardi Gras and helping CHR make a difference in the lives of so many in our community.”

The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company will raise additional funds during the event by participating in the “Swim for the Beads” race as the “Green Team.” Revelers at Mardi Gras can buy green beads to support the team and add tickets to the Green Team’s raffle bucket. If The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company wins the race, big raffle prizes will be drawn from the green team’s bucket.

This year’s Mardi Gras will also feature a stroll down “Bourbon Street” where attendees will enjoy live music, great food, and some fun surprises, including the chance to help CHR renovate one of their rental units via the “Give to Give” table.

“This is the fourth CHR Mardi Gras but promises to be the best one yet!” said Mardi Gras co-chairman Melissa Rice. “Our goal is to have a ton of fun while we raise much needed funds to help renovate many of our units. Your support will benefit not only CHR residents but all the residents living on Sanibel. Thank you!”

The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company joins a growing list of sponsors, including event Premier Sponsor, The Sanibel Catering Company by Bailey’s, and event 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.
