A year in the life of the Friends

The Friends of Sarasota County Parks has had a good year – our volunteers have been actively protecting and preserving our parks, even as new initiatives have us engaged in fundraising to fight skin cancer through Shade is Good with the help and guidance of The Patterson Foundation.

In January our fabulous Pavers at Siesta Beach will be back – watch for that! And in February Shade is Good  — aiming to fund protective shade structures for all our athletic  fields — will kick off.

If you can, please help us say good-bye to the old year and welcome 2016 with your tax-deductible year-end contribution – just click “Donate” in the upper right hand corner of any page on our site — and, for all you do, our sincere thanks!
