"The exposure is great. And just as important, it gives the dogs (and cats) time away from the shelter enforcement. "

[Adoption Event]  Your Furever Friend is Waiting at the Hound Happy Hour and Holiday Shopping Event at The Bazaar on Apricot and Lime
Barbie Heit, barbie.heit@srqme.com

It's the most wonderful time of the year to visit The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime! On Friday, December 9th, their doors will be open for after hours shopping, 5-8 pm for the first ever Hound Happy Hour.

Bring you four-legged family member for a free pup cup as you stroll through the market, have a bite to eat, and enjoy a craft beer or glass of wine while listening to live music by Jsanti, a musical artist and songwriter from New York City who will be performing a solo/acoustic set of original and cover material.

Every month The Bazaar opens the courtyard for animal rescues. At the December event, Satchels Last Resort and Tender Heart Charities will be bringing dogs available for adoption. According to Page Knoebel, President of Satchel’s Last Resort, "The exposure is great. And just as important, it gives the dogs (and cats) time away from the shelter enforcement. They are able to learn more about the animals which helps matching them to the perfect home easier."

Founder of Tender Heart Charities, Lisa Martin-Manns said they have had great success with actual adoptions from being at The Bazaar. In fact, three of the adoptions have been from members of The Bazaar family!

The guest vendors for Hound Happy Hour include: Kilted Canines (dog training), Vice & Virtue (custom beds & bandanas), Wiggle Your Tail Pet Care, Doody Calls, and Lit Dog Treats. There are more than 40 local creators and curators inside The Bazaar. Hamlet’s Eatery will be open for dinner. Creative Liberties across the street from The Bazaar will also be open. It's a great time to get your holiday shopping done.

“It’s always been important for The Bazaar to bring the community together,” said Bazaar co-owner Kim Livengood. “It’s been our mission since we started. From providing a space for small businesses to operate to dogs looking for their furever homes.”

[Recognition]  Resilient Retreat Recognizes Five Local Honorees on National Philanthropy Day

Resilient Retreat, a new Sarasota non-profit providing free and confidential support for survivors of trauma, first responders and helping professionals, proudly recognizes five key individuals who have helped contribute to the organization’s successful launch. During a National Philanthropy Day celebration held on November 8, by the Southwest Florida Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the following honorees were recognized: For the past two years, Stacy Fradkin has volunteered with Resilient Retreat, providing compassionate, empowering services for trauma survivors in the Southwest Florida community. As a yoga teacher and sound meditation facilitator, she has provided tangible tools for trauma survivors to cope with stress and to regulate the nervous system. Her services have been particularly valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic and the post-Hurricane Ian recovery and continue to be some of the most beloved programs offered at Resilient Retreat.  With more 15 years of event planning experience, Samantha Kingsley has spent countless hours--many of which as a volunteer--working on behalf of local area nonprofits, including Resilient Retreat, Embracing Our Differences, The Florida Center and the Palmetto Youth Center. Samantha and her team were critical to the success of Resilient Retreat’s recent Campus Building Dedication and Open House and its sold-out Grand Opening Luncheon with keynote speaker, actress and humanitarian Ashley Judd. Debbie and Gino LaMarca are a dynamic couple that are always willing to roll up their sleeves to help Resilient Retreat. Gino serves on the Board of Directors, ensuring good governance, financial accountability and sustainability, and a clear, focused strategic plan. Debbie serves on the Events Committee, helping to build awareness and raise funds to support the no-cost services provided by Resilient Retreat. Love IV Lawrence Foundation provides funding to reduce stigma and to build awareness about mental health. Thanks to the foundation’s generous support, Resilient Retreat received funding to provide trauma-informed equine therapy and neurofeedback for community members impacted by trauma. These programs have helped produce real change in the community, including lowering depression and PTSD. Sherri Mills serves as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors and the Fundraising Chair for Resilient Retreat. As a real estate agent, she donates 10 percent of every house she sells to local non-profit organizations.

[SOON]  : The Ringling - A Decade of Collecting , October 22 – January 22, Varied

A Decade of Collecting brings together a survey of artworks acquired for the permanent collection over the past eleven years. As the State Art Museum of Florida and a division of Florida State University, The Ringling’s collections are constantly expanding to provide our state and local community with access to current contemporary works in all media and thoughtful additions to our historic collections. Though the core of the collection has always been the works acquired by John and Mable Ringling, the museum’s holdings have been expanding ever since the State of Florida took full possession of the bequest in 1946. In the early years, these additions were mainly in pre-1800 European art and circus-related material, but over the second half of the 20th century, directors and curators also began acquiring works by modern and contemporary artists. A Decade of Collecting presents a unique snapshot of how The Ringling’s collection continues to evolve, allowing us to tell new stories of the past, present, and future.
