They say it “takes a village”. That is most certainly the case with Zonta San-Cap’s fundraising efforts, where each and every member of our club works tirelessly to raise money in support of empowering women.

Proceeds from our annual fundraiser are distributed through the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida to organizations that work to improve the lives of women and girls.

View the local service organizations that the Zonta Foundation supported this past year.

All of us at Zonta San-Cap are extremely grateful for the many sponsors and supporters who have helped us raise over $1 million for these important community non-profits over the past 20 years.

Peek at the Unique
The well-known and record-setting home tour and signature fundraiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva and the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, held annually in March since 2002.

For nearly 20 years, “Peek at the Unique” has earned its reputation as an island tradition and a sought-after day out for locals, seasonal residents, and visitors.

The event kicks off at the Sanibel Community Church, where participants enjoy delicious refreshments provided by leading island restaurants and caterers. Guests are then transported via luxury buses for a three-hour guided tour of four island homes, learning interesting and unique features for each of the homes.

Special thanks to the many sponsors and supporters who have helped us raise over $1 million for community non-profits via the “Peek at the Unique.”

Special Note
Due to the challenges and uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to cancel the 2020 “Peek” and have adjusted 2021 plans for the “Repurposed Peek” described above. Be sure to check back for details on “Peek at the Unique” for 2022!
