The Sanibel-Captiva chapter of Solutions to Avoid Red Tide, Inc. (START) is busily preparing for our fourth annual affair, featuring a grand evening of dining, dancing to the music of a live band, and enjoying the extraordinary good company of friends and family — cracker style! A live auction and raffles will add to the evening’s enjoyment, with additional highlights to be announced.
The laid-back atmosphere of the Cracker Fest celebrates Florida’s cultural legacy while raising awareness and financial support for our START chapter’s mission to promote healthy beaches and waterways through educational, scientific, and marine habitat/species preservation and restoration. Included in this year’s festivities will be an authentic Cracker Feast of Wayne’s wild pig and Ralph’s fried and smoked mullet — with all the trimmings, of course, including Esperanza’s biscuits, scrumptious dessert, ice cold beer and wine.
Cracker Fest will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 2, at The Bait Box property on Sanibel. Tickets are $100 per person, which will include admittance to the event, dinner, beer and wine, entertainment, a live auction and a complimentary raffle ticket. Admission to SanCap Cracker Fest is by reservation only and limited to the first 300 attendees.
