In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Girls Inc. of Sarasota County has opted to cancel the 2020 Celebration Luncheon. The event was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 21st at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium. Once initial shutdowns began in March, the organization decided to postpone the event for late July. As the COVID-19 situation progressed, it became apparent that rescheduling would not be an option.
The event was set to honor the late Charles & Margery Barancik, Dr. Laura Kingsley, Dr. Heidi Anderson & daughter Avery Brannen as well as two Girls Inc. girls, Aailyah Mitchell Davis & Zuleima Martinez. The organization is planning to host again in March of 2021 and will be releasing sponsorship and ticket opportunities early in the year.
