We Need Your Help


As you all know, each year the Foundation holds many activities which include the Fall "Fun" Raiser Party, Holiday Food Drive, Golf Event, Broadway Under the Stars, and the Lucky Ducks.  These events help raise monies to support worthy activities and projects in South Sarasota County by providing financial grants to qualified not for profit organizations. 


We're looking for volunteers that would help with our events.  We've brainstormed a list, but we're always looking for new fundraising ideas.  Some of the committees are in place, however we welcome members that would like to be more activly involved.


There are numerous ways of helping whether it be joining a committee to help set up for an event, soliciting area merchants for raffle items and/or donations, selling tickets before or at an event, volunteering to be a cashier for an event .........just to name a few.  It takes many volunteers to make an event successful.  


Other areas:

  • Foundation Board
  • Grant Committee
  • Various opportunities to work in areas of auctioneering, entertainment, events planning, raffles, decorations, etc.


Don't forget our Huggy Bears program that utilizes volunteers to sew, stuff, and deliver teddy bears to children in the ER at Venice Hospital.
