Enjoy the O’s and Protect our Kids – March 29th


The Friends of Sarasota County Parks kicked off 2016 with a new initiative: Shade Is Good: Helping to Fight Skin Cancer.  Our goal over the next 5 years is to provide additional shade  at County park athletic fields and recreational areas through the  purchase and installation of shade structures.  

The funds to support this project will come from our the sale of  Shade Is Good merchandise  (UV certified and hydration products) at community events, through fund raising partnerships with youth athletic leagues and local medical professionals, an e-commerce site to be launched late spring 2016; grants, sponsorship and net proceeds of special events.
Our first event is on March 29th at Ed Smith Stadium, the Orioles vs Atlanta Braves game viewed from the second level World Series Suites.  Dinner, beverages and a fun filled evening are all included. Tickets are available at www.foscp.org.
Watch the game from a comfortable shady area and join  the Friends of Sarasota County Parks to fight skin cancer.
