The Sanctuary Golf Club as host and underwriting sponsor of the 16th annual The Sanctuary Charity Classic on Jan. 27, announced Ralph and Carolyn Clark of Sanibel as Honorary Chairpersons.

Ralph Clark stated, “Carolyn and I are very pleased to represent The Sanctuary membership as Honorary Chairs of The Sanctuary Charity Classic. Our friends at the Club are always quick to support those in need on the island. This event, in partnership with the Charitable Foundation of the Islands, is a wonderful venue for their generosity. We invite all of you to participate in this great day of golf on our beautiful course.”

“Ralph and Carolyn Clark have been Members of The Sanctuary Golf Club since its inception – 1992. Their commitment and contributions to our island community have been extraordinary. It is an honor having them represent The Sanctuary’s premier charity event,” said Ken Kouril, Chief Operating Officer of The Sanctuary Golf Club.

There are numerous sponsorship opportunities ranging from the $7,500 Diamond Partnership, which includes additional rounds of golf, lunch, and dinner at The Sanctuary Golf Club to a $250 Hole Partnership. All proceeds go directly to the Charitable Foundation of the Islands, which in turn distributes the funds to assist island nonprofit organizations, individual island residents and workers who have experienced hardships such as medical and financial emergencies.
The Sanctuary Charity Classic begins at 10:30 a.m. with a brunch, followed by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. Afterward, golfers meet at the clubhouse for drinks and hors d’oeuvres, an awards presentation, and the ever-popular helicopter drop. Show your support by participating in any part of the day or all day. For more information about The Sanctuary Charity Classic, contact Andy Phelan at 239.472.6223 or
