Excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at an Alums Inc. luncheon meeting at noon, Nov. 16! I’ll be covering local issues in my talk, something I love to do.
The event will be held at the Laurel Oak Country Club. It’s a member-only event, but members are allowed to bring guests — so if you know someone who belongs, hitch a ride and come along!
I’m going to be a celebrity (as if!) judge at the 4th annual Family Promise of Sarasota “Just Desserts” event on Friday, March 23 at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. And all the proceeds benefit the nonprofit’s work to help homeless families regain self-sufficiency. Open to the public — the $50 entry donation gets you access to an extravaganza of desserts created and donated by local chefs. Come on by and say Hi!
