We are proud to partner with Sanibel Catering Company by Bailey’s to sponsor the 4th Annual Sanibel Robbie’s Run (or Walk or Crawl) Saturday, Jan. 14 at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. The 5k run circles nine holes of the golf course and raises funds for the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
Participants must raise $500 to take part in Robbie’s Run. Billy’s Rentals has donated a limited number of Segways for those who can’t run, walk or crawl the course – instruction provided.
Registration begins at 4 p.m. and the event at 5 p.m. Participants will enjoy appetizers prepared with fresh, local ingredients by the renowned Sanibel Catering Co. A ball drop will be at 6 p.m. with the winner taking home two round-trip Southwest Airlines tickets to a destination of their choice within the United States, plus $500 “walking around money.” Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.
Robbie’s Run is organized by Grampy’s Charities, which is a 100 percent volunteer organization and has donated more than $3 million to children’s charities in the past quarter century.
“Grampy’s Charities works hard to make a difference in the lives of children who need it the most,” said Lily & Co. Owners Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell. “We are honored to be a part of Robbie’s Run and helping to bring a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to our area.”
The RMCM travels to schools, community centers and neighborhoods delivering dental care and medical screenings. While the program has been in Collier County since 2004, a second Care Mobile was due to arrive in Fall of 2016 to service Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties.
In addition to supporting the RMCM, Lily & Co. will be sponsoring a golf challenge to benefit Charitable Foundation of the Islands, Cooking with the Islands Stars to benefit Sanibel Community House and the Sanibel-Captiva Heart Walk to benefit the American Heart Association.
“We are delighted to give back to our community because it has given so much to us,” said Schuyler and Bell, who celebrated a decade of business in 2016.
