The Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation has been announced as an Ambassador Sponsor with its gift of $10,000 to SanCap Cares, the island community’s effort to support Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.


“SanCap Cares inspires us all by its year-in, year-out achievements in support of Golisano Children’s Hospital, and the Sanctuary Foundation is absolutely delighted to be a part of this effort,” said Lisa Schmidlin, President of the Sanctuary Golf Club Foundation Board.


This year, the SanCap Cares gala will return to a live, in-person celebration on April 3rd at The Sanctuary Golf Club. The focus of this year’s fundraising efforts is “All About the Brain”. Golisano Children’s Hospital continues to work to strengthen its Pediatric Mental Health services, while embarking on a new Neurosurgery program and the formation of a brain research and education partnership with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. A renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Theodore Spinks, has joined the Golisano team to oversee development of the program.


The 2022 SanCap Cares Island Celebration will share details of these critical programs, while providing an exciting and memorable experience for guests and supporters. The “Olde Florida Nights”-themed festivities will include amazing culinary tastings and a signature cocktail to accompany the compelling “Give to Give” auction of items to support the hospital’s programs.


The celebration will culminate with a five-star dinner and world-class entertainment by The Modern Gentlemen, who return to Sanibel after their unforgettable first performance at the SanCap Cares gala in 2019. The quartet of talented entertainers will once again create the ultimate vocal experience for gala guests’ listening and dancing pleasure.


Since SanCap Cares’ inception in 2001, islanders have raised more than $17,000,000 to support the life-changing work at Golisano Children’s Hospital. To learn more about SanCap Cares, visit
