We cherish our community and take great joy in celebrating its vibrant spirit! Whether it’s the We Are One! Multicultural Festival, which brings together diverse cultures in a harmonious display, the soulful Big Mama’s Collard Greens Fest that tantalizes taste buds, or the inspiring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Day of Service, where we come together to serve our community, each event reflects our deep appreciation for our community’s culture, talent, and friendship.
Moreover, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Sarasota Performing Arts Center Foundation and Billionaire Babies, which adds an exciting dimension to our lineup of events for children. Together, we will create unforgettable experiences that captivate young minds and nurture their creativity.
