The Sanibel Historical Village’s 2018 “Let’s Get Historical” Gala will be February 19 in The Community House. This year’s theme is “Leave Your Footsteps in the Sand,” and Bailey’s is the Grand Sponsor.
The February 19 event will include music by Kelly & Shelly, a husband-and-wife duo with a versatile style. Performing together for more than 25 years, Kelly & Shelly will be playing plenty of music for dancing. Sanibel Catering Co. by Bailey’s will cater the gala. Known for excellence throughout the island, they will be offering three dinner choices: filet medallions and shrimp, chicken marsala, and pesto-crusted Atlantic salmon.
Tickets are still available for $125 each, and sponsor levels are available at $1,000 and $500. For tickets, contact Emilie Alfino at 472-4648 or via email at email@example.com.
