Your getaway begins the moment you step onto Karen & Dale Medford’s 45’ power vessel, Sea Fox. The breezy, two-hour journey will transport two couples to the 100-acre bridgeless private island club located within the waterways of Pine Island Sound—a premier destination Condé Nast Traveler ranks as, “One of the Top 25” true island retreats in the world.

There you will enjoy the quintessential island lifestyle: small sailboats lay in wait for the next regatta; the croquet court is professionally groomed; and the water beckons kayakers, paddle boarders, fishermen and sunbathers. You will also join the Medfords for dinner paired with wines as part of your wonderful evening at this exclusive, luxurious, Old Florida resort.

Kick off this getaway with delicious dinner paired with wines at the Pelican Isle Yacht Club! 

INSIDER’S INFO: The dates for the trip are set for March 30–March 31, 2019. If the winning bidder would prefer to take the trip on different dates, it would be for a mutually agreed upon date prior to December 15th and the exact suites at the Collier Inn cannot be guaranteed. The boat will depart from and return to the Pelican Isle Yacht Club (PIYC) in North Naples. The cruise north to Useppa Island is about two (2) hours. In the event of unpleasant seas, the boat will leave from a location in Ft. Myers and stay in the Intercoastal waterways.

DONORS: Karen & Dale Medford and Denise & Brian Cobb
