Sarasota Yacht Club Grants $50,000 to Local Nonprofits

The Giving Coast

Sarasota Yacht Club is pleased to announce the result of its most recent SYC Cares initiative, connecting members with local nonprofit organizations throughout the Suncoast. The Club granted $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties and $25,000 to the Child Protection Center, two nonprofits making a positive impact in the community through their SYC Cares Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. SYC Cares, the Club’s philanthropic arm, sponsored the inaugural “Casino for a Cause” fundraising event with more than 200 members in attendance when the grants were announced. The Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties and the Child Protection Center were selected by the membership after three rounds of voting. The eight participating nonprofit organizations not selected in the final round each received a $1,000 donation from the SYC Cares Fund. The Club is also happy to announce Bobby and Cindy Overall are this year’s recipients of the annual “Anchor Award for Philanthropy.” The award honors an individual or family member who has demonstrated outstanding civic and charitable leadership within the Club and whose generosity of time and talents have encouraged others within the Sarasota Yacht Club to be involved.
