Lily & Co. Jewelers is hosting two special events in one spectacular weekend – meet famed designer Charles Krypell March 2-4 with the 10th Annual “Sanibel Uncorked” topping it all off from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 4.
“Charles is a genuine people person who loves to meet collectors or those who admire impeccable pieces of jewelry,” said Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. with Realtor Karen Bell. “When you meet him, you will love the man and his jewelry.”
Krypell, who was a sculptor before becoming an internationally-known jewelry designer, has seamlessly woven his two beloved crafts together by sculpting exquisite pieces destined to touch the hearts of those who wear them. His ability to connect with the human spirit through his designs comes from more than three decades of creating timeless jewelry for the sophisticated woman.
“Charles’ passion for art shows through in his designs,” said Schuyler. “These three days will not be your average show, but a true Lily & Co. shopping experience with one of the most renowned designers in the world.”
The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club’s annual “Sanibel Uncorked” is a food and wine festival that always entertains guests. It features an extensive wine and craft beer tasting paired with our islands’ top chefs sharing signature creations during cooking demonstrations.
A silent auction will accompany the culinary excitement with treasures from gourmet wines, jewelry and artwork to hotel and golf packages. This special event has provided multiple-year scholarships for aspiring college students and continues to provide that opportunity for more young people every year.
For the past several years, Lily & Co. has provided its parking lot for the event to be held under a big tent with valet parking available for all guests. “We are honored every year to assist the Optimist Club with Sanibel Uncorked,” said Schuyler. “This organization does great things for our community that can sometimes go unnoticed.”
There is a $30 donation or $25 for designated drivers suggested for tickets, which are available at www.eventbrite.com/e/sanibel-uncorked-tickets. Tickets are also available at Lily & Co., Bailey’s General Store, Sanibel-Captiva Community Bank, and Sanibel Cafe.
