The Boatyard Waterfront Bar & Grill hosted their annual “Light A Tree – Brighten A Future” fundraiser last month and raised much needed funds for The Sarasota Youth Shelter located at 1106 S. Briggs Ave, in Sarasota.
“Each year, our guests and local businesses sponsor a Christmas tree,” said Siobhan Fox, manager of Boatyard Waterfront Bar & Grill. “We line the trees up on our docks and the night of the event, everyone comes for a decorating party. To add to the festivities prizes are announced, from raffle tickets purchased, throughout the evening.”
Special thanks goes to Home Depot on Cattleman for donating all the Christmas trees, along with all the following businesses for helping make our fundraiser such a success: Exp Realty, Sunbelt Equipment Rentals, Arney’s Army, Evie’s on Main, Beach Club, Molly’s, New Balance, Fleet Feet, Thirsty Turtle, Cannons Steak House, Shaners Pizza, Gilligan’s, Johnny’s Car Wash, Island Tap House, Long Horn Steak House.
