Bank of the Islands gives to Sanibel Historical Museum and Village
Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its “We Love Our Islands” program. The lucky winner, Alex Werner, was spotted with a “We Love Our Islands” decal on his vehicle, winning him the right to select which local non-profit organization would receive a charitable contribution from Bank of the Islands. Werner chose to donate his winnings of $1,300 to the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. That donation marks $92,000 given away to date through Bank of the Islands’ We Love Our Islands program.
“Bank of the Islands is so happy Alex chose to have us support the museum and village,” said Willy Ocasio, Bank of the Islands Vice President and Sanibel-Captiva Office Manager. “This is a must-see place to visit on our islands. Alex has been such a valued member of the group ensuring Sanibel’s history is honored through this very special organization, most recently with this gift. Supporting the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village through our We Love Our Islands program is a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank!” All islanders are invited to visit the bank’s Sanibel or Captiva office to learn more about the “We Love Our Islands” program and how you and your favorite charity can become our next lucky winners.
