Sanibel Air Conditioning, Inc. has become one of the top level sponsors in the fourth annual Cracker Fest scheduled to take place on Friday, November 2nd, 2012. The donation includes a brand new air conditioning system, which includes installation, and is valued at over $5,000. This is the third year that Sanibel Air has supported this cause. The event includes a dinner, live music and dancing, live auction and raffles.
The annual event benefits Sanibel-Captiva chapter of Solutions to Avoid Red Tide (START). The organization is a state-wide non-profit foundation with a mission to improve the quality of our marine waters through research, public education and programs that restore marine habitat and preserve marine species.
Proceeds from the event will continue funding the Coastal Classroom program for Lee County schools, and the Sustainable Seafood Program, “Seafood Savvy” and other programs that benefit the local marine environment. In addition to these programs, plans are in the works to create a beach monitoring network on Sanibel and Captiva that will provide knowledge of specific beach conditions during a red tide event, and the possibility of creating a marine studies scholarship with a portion of the 2012 proceeds.
“We really love this event. It brings together a great crowd, its laidback and fun, and of course, it has a really good cause. For those of us who live and work on the islands, it’s invaluable that we continue to come together to raise awareness and funds that help support causes that benefit our environment,” said Bryan Hayes, co-owner of Sanibel Air Conditioning. “We are always grateful to have the ability to do what we can and we look forward to another great Cracker Fest.”
Sanibel Air was started in 1988 and has maintained their promise to provide the best local service around for over 22 years. Sanibel Air is highly active in their community, and participate or contribute to several charitable causes throughout the year; some of their primary contributions are coaching a youth soccer team, monetary donations to the Sanibel-Captiva Lions and sponsoring the McFlat’s Invitational Fishing Tournament that benefits the Ronald McDonald House charities of SWFL.
