Coconut Telegraph


The Education Foundation of Sarasota County hosted their createSRQ Gala Celebration on February 26 at Michael’s on the Bay at Selby Botanical Gardens. The signature fundraising event, previously known as Evening of Excellence for 21 years was re-branded in 2017 as CreateSRQ to highlight the exciting changes made to the student art competition, auction format and event location. Cocktails on the lawn set the stage for the evening with all top 25 art pieces on display and the high school artists available to discuss their work, their inspiration and the creative process with guests. The top five art pieces were part of a live auction that also included trips to Napa Valley and New York City. In all, over $200,000 was raised by The Education Foundation of Sarasota County to support their mission and education initiatives including academics, arts, college and career readiness, and technology and innovation.
