San-Cap Community Bank Named
Presenting Sponsor For CHR Mardi Gras
Community Housing and Resources (CHR) announced last week that Sanibel
Captiva Community Bank has been named the Presenting Sponsor of CHR’s
4th annual Mardi Gras fundraiser on Saturday, February 6 on Sanibel Island.
“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 bank-
ing needs. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank has also helped many of our limited equi-
ty 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-style street fare
along with the chance to directly help CHR renovate an older housing unit at their
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 oppor-
tunity 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.
