In 2017, the Sanctuary Golf Club was magically transformed as the 4th Annual Go F.I.S.H.! Celebration took guests to a 'Wizard Of Oz' themed event. Enjoy an evening of entertainment including the popular "Live Auction" antics of Nicole Decker-McHale aka "Glenda the Good Witch" and Eric Pfeifer the "Mayor of Munchkinland" as they always have surprises in store for all the attendees. Eric and Nicole have enjoyed helping F.I.S.H. and other non-profits raise money by donating time and talent to bring fun to the process and entertainment with each live auction item. Maggi Feiner, Executive Director of FISH only asks one favor of Eric, "whatever you do is okay with me, dress funny, act funny, just don't tell any jokes". Guests were also entertained by The Sanibel School Performing Arts Group a special presentation of the music and costumes of their Wizard of Oz production!
