THE ISLAND SUN, ASHTON & KIRCHNER TO SPONSOR SANIBEL HISTORICAL VILLAGE GALA

January 26, 2022 – The Sanibel Historical Village welcomes The Island Sun newspaper as a silver sponsor of the Village’s fundraiser Gala Movie Premiere on February 22, 2022, when it will show the documentary “Secrets & Stories of the Sanibel Lighthouse.”

“The Island Sun has always been a great supporter of the Sanibel community, and I can’t say enough about how much the newspaper and its staff does for us throughout the year,” said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “We’re very grateful to have them as a sponsor.

Also joining as a silver sponsor is the Ashton Kirchner Group. “We really appreciate the community-minded support of the Ashton Kirchner Group,” Alfino said. “The way they operate their business and the values they hold are the perfect match with Sanibel’s proud history.”

Anyone interested in a business or individual sponsorship can call Alfino at (239) 472-4648 or
(239) 357-1644. “As we all know, it really does take a village – and it takes community-minded businesses and individuals to help keep our village, the keeper of history, alive on Sanibel,” Alfino said.
