Sahib Shrine Circus and Family Festival Gives Back with A Special Performance

The Giving Coast

The Sahib Shrine Circus & Family Festival kicks off its fun-filled weekend (November 3-5) with a private circus performance for local children, teens, and adults from three local non-profit agencies that receive support from Suncoast Charities for Children. This special performance will take place on Thursday, November 2, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Sahib Shrine located at 600 N. Beneva Road. Individuals from Children First, The Haven, and The Florida Center for Early Childhood will be treated to a ringside seat and complimentary food and beverages. One performer in the show, Aodhan Lane, is autistic and will be making his circus debut by lighting up the stage in an aerial LED cube. He became inspired by Hugh Jackman’s performance as the Ringmaster in The Greatest Showman and immediately began training in circus arts and acting. He is a 3-time award winner of Autism’s Got Talent and in 2021 told his story of how he found his passion through circus arts in a short film “Juggling Autism.” Lucy Nicandri, Executive Director of Suncoast Charities for Children, shared: “I was so excited when the Sahib Shrine reached out to me with this special invitation to make it a special day for several local non-profits that we support. After hearing about Aodhan’s hope to inspire others to live their dreams with all their hearts and to never give up, aligned with our mission and made their invitation even more special.” The Sahib Shrine Circus & Family Festival will have afternoon and evening performances all weekend long beginning Friday, November 3 through Sunday, November 5. In addition to the indoor circus performance, there will be plenty of interactive and fun-filled children’s activities going on outside such as pony rides, bounce houses, games, and much more! Proceeds will benefit the local Shrine and charities that the Shrine supports. For tickets and information visit sahibevents.com or call (941) 870-7444.
