The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum announced that the 3rd annual Celebrity Island Dinner will be held on Wednesday, October 3 from 6:30 to 10 p.m.
The event, hosted by and in collaboration with Traders Store & Cafe on Sanibel, brings local celebrities to your table to deliver VIP service to you during the evening events.
This annual event guarantees to put the “fun” into fundraiser. Raffle prizes will be awarded throughout the evening and Chris Workman will perform island music favorites.
The list of prominent local celebrity servers includes Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce President Ric Base, restaurateur Matt Asen, Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Chief Danny Duncan, entreprenuer Anne Joffe, restaurateur Sandy Stilwell, island jeweler Dan Schuyler, and realtor John Naumann. (Rumor has it that October 3 is Anne Joffe’s birthday, so guests are welcome to show their appreciation accordingly.)
Event host Joe Archambault has designed a special menu including: soup or salad (fresh seafood gumbo, feta and raspberry mixed green salad, or a classic Caesar salad); entrée (shrimp linguini, Parmesan-encrusted chicken, tropicalflavored grouper or peppercorn encrusted ribeye steak); and dessert (Keylime or peanut butter pie).
The evening begins with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00pm
Tickets are $55 per person, and all proceeds benefit The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum.
