“Claremont makes every effort to ‘Build Back Better than Before’, and we are very proud of the hard work and dedication by our entire team on Sanibel and the surrounding areas.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with this great community and we are thrilled to be able to support Kiwanis in keeping its youth services and scholarships going while recovery continues.”

The Kiwanis Club welcomed the support from a source not usually a part of its Island fundraising network.  Said Kiwanis President Jeff Blackman: “This is a difficult time for many Island residents and businesses who normally support our fundraising with sponsorship funds and patronage. Many residents are still displaced, and many local businesses are not back in operation and not able to participate.  In their absence, it is great to see organizations like Claremont stepping up to fill the gap.”

The upcoming Spaghetti Dinner will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 4 PM to 8 PM, at the Sanibel Community House. The dinner serves up an all-you-can-eat Italian feast—salad, pasta & meatballs, special recipe Kiwanis spaghetti sauce, garlic bread, wine and beverages (wine & soda).  After dinner, wine, coffee and dessert will be available (famous Bubble Room cakes in three popular flavors).

Tickets to the Spaghetti Dinner are $20 per person (kids under 10 eat free!).  They can be purchased at various locations around town including: Bank of the Islands, Jerry’s Foods, San-Cap Community Bank, SanCap Pak-N-Ship, Captiva Civic Association, Sanibel Island Farmers Market, Huxter’s, The Shack, Sea Oats Day Spa, Periwinkle Park office, and from Kiwanis members.
