CHR (Community Housing and Resources) would like to express its deepest gratitude to all those who contributed to the resounding success of their recent gala event held on February 3.


The gala, a remarkable evening of celebration and philanthropy, brought together a diverse group of individuals and organizations committed to making a positive impact on the community. CHR would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the volunteers, artists, and sponsors who played an integral role in making the event a memorable and impactful experience.


“Without the incredible support of our volunteers, artists, and sponsors, our gala would not have been such a resounding success,” said Nicole Decker-McHale, executive director at CHR. “Their dedication and generosity are truly inspiring, and we are immensely grateful for their contributions towards our mission of ensuring affordable housing for all.”


CHR Community Housing and Resources remains committed to working tirelessly towards its mission of providing affordable housing options to the workforce and senior citizens on Sanibel Island. The success of the gala serves as a testament to the collective power of a community united in its pursuit of a better future.
