April Events on Sanibel: Southern Comfort on Sanibel


April Events on Sanibel: Southern Comfort on Sanibel

Looking for events on Sanibel during April? Look no further, you’re in luck!

 For the third year, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) will host members and supporters at the newly-renovated Sanibel Community House for one of Sanibel Island’s most popular fundraisers Southern Comfort. Join locals and visitors for dinner, dancing and fun before saying goodbye for the summer. The best part? All the money raised will go directly to the clinic to further care for sick, injured and orphaned animals of Southwest Florida.

Southern Comfort is truly a community affair that allows all our island businesses to participate! This year, an assortment of comfort food will be provided by the mouthwatering eatery The Pecking Order and Island Ballroom will provide the music. In addition to the food and music, there is more fun than ever offered at the 2017 fundraising event. Carnival style games like darts, basketball, a putting green and a wine bottle ring toss will provide guests with the opportunity to earn tickets that can be redeemed for silly to nice prizes.

This year, the event will feature its first-ever live auction and raffle. Attendees will enjoy the chance to score a meal for eight from Resident Chef Jarred Harris in the winner’s home. Plus, a personal movie viewing at Island Cinema for 40 of the winner’s family, friends and coworkers, drinks and popcorn included! Raffle winners will receive one of eight prizes including jewelry from Congress Jewelers, a CROW wildlife walk and a gift certificate to Norman Love Chocolates.

The 3rd annual Southern Comfort on Sanibel event will be held Saturday, April 1. The doors open at 6 p.m. and the last dance ends at 9 p.m., at the Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. Tickets are $55 per person before March 22. The price increases to $65 a person thereafter. Those interested can purchase tickets at, or at the door the day of the event.

The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife is a teaching hospital and visitor education center dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education and conservation medicine. Each year, CROW cares for approximately 3,500 wildlife patients including more than 200 species of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in its veterinary hospital, which is one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation facilities for native and migratory wildlife.
