Bank of the Islands is proud to be a $1,500 sponsor of the gala and film premiere benefiting the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village on February 20.


“The Historical Museum is doing such a service to our islands by presenting this new documentary,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “While tragic in their aftermath, the storm events we have overcome should be shared with those who lived through them as well as new island residents.”


The highlight of the gala evening will be the premiere of “Wreckage, Resilience, and Recovery: The History of Hurricanes on Sanibel”. The event will be held from 5-8pm at the Sanibel Community House. A wait list to attend can be entered on


Bank of the Islands is located at 1699 Periwinkle Way, at the corner of Casa Ybel Road, on Sanibel. The Captiva office is at 14812 Captiva Drive, next to the Captiva Post Office. As the oldest locally owned and managed community bank on Sanibel and Captiva, Bank of the Islands is proud to be the winner of more than 50 “Best of the Islands” awards over two decades.
