December 21, 2021 – The Sanibel Historical Village has recently announced that two island businesses will be in-kind sponsors of the Village’s Gala Movie Premiere on February 22, 2022, when it will show the documentary “Secrets & Stories of the Sanibel Lighthouse.” Blue Giraffe Restaurant will be a Platinum Sponsor, and Bailey’s General Store will be a Silver Sponsor.
“Sponsorships are essential to the success of our Gala fundraiser,” said Village Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “These businesses have long been supporters of the Village, and we are so grateful for their continued patronage. We could never fulfill our mission of preserving, sharing, and celebrating Sanibel History without them.”
