Beer in the Bushes is possibly the most fun you will have at any Island Fundraising Event (yes, as an SCCF Past Board Member, Mary Ellen is biased). Under the stars at the Nature Center, guest enjoys all sorts of fun. Microbrews from all over are there for you to sample and often a vote for your favorite can be cast. Each ticket also comes with Trucks Bucks to be spent on a variety of food trucks that offer several different delicious options. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes so you can wander along the nature paths and boardwalks. But, most of all, be ready to dance, dance, dance!

2017 Beer in the Bushes: SCCF was honored to have G. Love and Special Sauce perform on the Beer in the Bushes stage to a sold-out crowd. It was a non-stop dance party and quite a concert. G. Love aka Garrett Dutton has strong roots on Sanibel and visits his family here on the islands every year. Garrett began playing music at an age when he picked up a guitar and wrote his first song in 9th grade. He is the ultimate showman on stage and keeps a crowd engaged and entertained.
