This past Sunday forty of Equality Florida's strongest supporters from the Suncoast gathered at the home of Rita Ferrandino for an afternoon of fun and fellowship. During a brief program, Rita shared her vision for Sarasota County and the country and recommitted herself and the resources she helps guide as Chair of the Sarasota Democratic Party to the pursuit of equality. Joe Saunders, Equality Florida's Field Director, briefed the crowd on our recent victories and the challenges that still lie ahead. The short program closed with a few words from former Sarasota City Commissioner, and Equality Florida's Suncoast Steering Committee Chair, Ken Shelin.
Seventeen of our guests signed up to join the host committee for Equality Florida's 2011 Suncoast Gala - marking the day as a home run success!
Thank you to all of our members in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlottee counties. It's because of you that Equality Florida's important work is possible.
