Brunch on the Bay

The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee’s signature annual event, Brunch on the Bay, will celebrate its 24th anniversary on Sunday, November 5 — marking more than two decades of raising funds for local undergraduate scholarships.

Since 1994, Brunch on the Bay has been USFSM’s premiere fundraising event, providing millions in scholarship dollars and building community awareness. This year features a special appeal as USF Sarasota-Manatee plans to design and construct the Sarasota-Manatee Science & Research Building.

This new facility has long been discussed and comes as USFSM strives to focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers in response to local employers and national and regional labor trends.

Brunch on the Bay guests include more than 900 corporate and individual donors, community leaders, volunteers, faculty, staff, students and friends of the university. Twenty of Sarasota and Manatee counties’ finest restaurants and caterers will prepare their signature dishes for the event, held under tents on USF Sarasota-Manatee’s picturesque campus.

The dedicated commitment of the Sarasota-Manatee community makes possible financial aid for USFSM students from all facets of life. In 23 years of Brunch on the Bay, the event has contributed more than $1.3 million to the university endowment and generated more than $1 million in scholarships, including many to first generation students, the first in their families to attend college.
