For the fourth year in a row, Eric Pfeifer of Pfeifer Realty Group has been selected to receive the Sanibel and Captiva Islands Association of Realtors' Community Service Award.
Each year this award is presented to the agent or broker who actively volunteers their time and talents in many areas throughout the island community. Pfeifer's dedication and commitment to Sanibel's youth sports programs has benefited children for many years. In 2003, Pfeifer started Sanibel's first NFL Youth Flag Football League and continues to coach and organize this sport today.
After 10 years of coaching youth softball and baseball, Pfeifer managed Sanibel's Little League program in 2009 and 2010. He also enjoyed coaching Canterbury School's first 11-man middle school football team this past year.
Pfeifer has donated his time and energy to benefit the Sanibel Community House as a performer in "Dancing with the Island Stars," as the Guinness Book of World Records "Sanibel Stoop Drill Sergeant", and soon will be performing the ceremonies for "A Wedding in the House" Dr. Seuss style.
Pfeifer's brokerage firm is also home to the 100 percent Pure Sanibel Island Donation Campaign which began in 2012 and to date has donated more than $1,500 to local island non-profit organizations.
Pfeifer remains an active board member of the Sanibel Captiva Kiwanis Club and the Shell Harbor Home Owners Association.
