Peek at the Unique - March 16, 2019 - Saturday

 PEEK – MARCH 16, 2019

General Information about A Peek at the Unique


Saturday, March 16, 2019 is the date of the 18th annual “A Peek at the Unique,” the record-setting home tour and signature fund raiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva and the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida. It is a sought-after day out for islanders, seasonal residents and visitors from off island.

The guided tour of four island homes, each one unique in its own way, takes about three hours. Guests ride comfortably on air-conditioned buses with an experienced tour attendant and receive specific information about each home visited. Prior to boarding, they enjoy delicious refreshments provided by leading island restaurants and caterers. The tour departure point will again be the Sanibel Community Church, reopened after extensive renovations and improvements.

Funds raised come from tour ticket sales, business sponsors, individual benefactors and Chance at the Unique Raffle ticket sales. Proceeds from the 2018 Peek were the highest ever, and the club will distribute over $100,000 in grants to local organizations that focus on improving the status of women. This is in addition to over $30,000 pledged to Zonta International in support of global initiatives that target women’s needs for health, financial independence and freedom from violence and slavery. The monies raised by the Peek are distributed in grants by the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit group, to local and international organizations that are consistent with the Zonta mission: to empower women and girls on island, in Lee County and throughout the world.
