(Sanibel, FL – November 21, 2014) – The Sanibel and Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce announced today that South Seas Island Resort has taken a gold sponsorship for this year’s Luminary Festival weekend. The 30th annual 2014 Luminary celebrations will take place on Friday, December 5th on Sanibel and on Saturday, December 6th on Captiva.

Bob Walter, Regional Managing Director for South Seas Island Resort, Inns of Sanibel, and The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club, stated, “The luminary festivities are an exclamation mark to another fantastic year for Sanibel and Captiva. We are thrilled to be a part of such a strong community and we thank the SanCap Chamber, its members, volunteers, and residents for their continued support.”
