Taste of the Islands will be held on Sunday, November 11, at the Sanibel Community Park. Gates open at 12:30 PM and close at 5 PM. The event features live music and showcases the vibrant, diverse and creative Sanibel and Captiva Islands restaurant community. Returning this year, event attendees can get a ‘taste’ of CROW and meet the Animal Ambassadors in the Sanibel Community House.
Admission to Taste of the Islands is $7 and children younger than 12 years of age are free. Guests purchase CROW Bucks to get their “tastes” from participating restaurants. Item prices range from one to six CROW Bucks. Admissions and CROW Bucks are available for purchase at the event and in advance through CROW’s website and can be picked up at the Will Call booth at Taste of the Islands.
Proceeds from Taste of the Islands ensure CROW’s continued success providing the highest quality care and treatment of injured, ill and orphaned wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, including the many sea birds and sea turtles affected by harmful algal blooms like red tide. Funds also support public educational exhibits at the Visitor Education Center. Healthy wildlife means a healthy environment for all of us.
Thanks to all our sponsors, Taste of the Islands will be a great time with great food and great friends that you won’t want to miss! Come on out to support CROW and local restaurants that have been affected by red tide this summer! To learn more, visit the CROW website here.
