Unique Peek and Raffle On Sanibel Offer Lots of (Sur) Prizes

Our friend Orlene on Sanibel is one of those good people who is always doing something good for others...her kids, her friends, us, just about everyone she knows.

So when Orlene tells us about something she thinks is worthwhile, we listen.

We recently received an email from Orlene telling us about an event called Peek at the Unique, a paid tour of exclusive homes on Sanibel Island. And so the good flows. The monies raised through the $60 per ticket price for the tour will go to the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva to support organizations that are improving the lives of women on the islands, in Lee County , as well as internationally.

Specifically, the tour monies will benefit these worthwile organizatons:

FISH of Sanibel and Community Housing Resources (CHR)

Brightest Horizons Child Development Center

PACE Center for Girls

Miracles in Action and GRACE, for projects combating Human Trafficking

Southwest Florida Addiction Services

Partners for Breast Cancer Care

The tour will offer a sneak peek at some exclusive homes not available for viewing by other means.

But the surprises don't stop there.

Those who take the tour---- as well as those who don't---- will have an opportunity to win some wonderful prizes in a raffle. The six raffle prizes are:

A Platinum Sapphire & Cabochon Pendant by Jeffrey Bilgore/Lily Co. ($3,500 value)

A Dinner & wine-tasting meal for six, catered by Chef Melissa Talmage ($850 value)

A hand painted island style table by Teri Causey of McGregor Art Gallery ($600 value)

A shopping spree at Chico 's Eileen Fisher & Soma ($750 value)

Two roundtrip tickets between any 2 cities on Southwest Airlines ($800 value)

A Sanibel Sea School boat tour w/picnic from Sanibel Deli & Coffee Factory ($600 value)

Raffle tickets are $10 each. We liked all the prizes so much, we bought a ticket for each one.

There will be SIX separate drawings. The winners for each item will be drawn on Saturday, March 14th, at the conclusion of the Peek at the Sanibel Community Church on Sanibel. Winners do not need to be present to win.

So, if you want to see some really nice homes, here's what you do: Call 1-877-424-3572 for tickets. The "Peek" has sold out each year so call now if you're interested in attending this special event. And if you would like to purchase a raffle ticket for those great prizes, send an email to: with the subject heading RAFFLE TICKETS.
