Thirty years ago, Dr. Kay Glasser believed it was possible to build a campus that would help to improve the quality of life for all people in our region. This Leap Day, we celebrate those who believed in her vision to get us here, and those who believe in our future. This fundraiser will support our mission as we sustain Dr. Glasser’s vision for a healthy, connected community.
The 2024 Collaboration Celebration is a breakfast this year! Bringing together nonprofits, businesses, and donors to celebrate the importance of the human services network. We will be recognizing our second annual Emerging Leader Awards, sponsored by Bill and Barbara Little, developing the leaders who will shape Sarasota’s human services community in the years to come. Save the date and check back here for sponsorships and tickets sales.
The staff at Glasser/Schoenbaum have done a great job of connecting the many organizations on campus and creating a space that sparks collaboration. This sense of community extends to staff and clients alike, helping to break down barriers and leading to innovative ways to serve the community as a whole.
