BrandStory

Sunshine From Darkness, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the funding of local mental health services and programs and mental health research, has announced its 2024 Inspiring Hope Dinner. The organization’s annual fundraising event will take place on Friday, January 12, 2024 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (1111 Ritz Carlton Drive).

This year's keynote speaker will be American comedian, actor, producer and writer Tom Arnold, who will speak about his journey with anxiety and longtime battles with addiction.

The evening will feature “Faces Behind the Stories,” shining a spotlight on the personal, sometimes difficult journeys of four members of our community: Roger Capote, senior vice president, marketing & community relations and CCO, CAN Community Health; Kelvin Foster, chaplain, North River Fire District and American Red Cross Disaster spiritual care regional advisor for Central and SW Florida; Sydney Koffman, chemical engineer; and Linda Larsen, motivational speaker.

The event will also feature the bestowing of the 2024 Lee and Bob Peterson Legacy Award to Bunny Skirboll, founder of Compeer, Inc., a lively paddle raise, live music with Quintessence – featuring some very special guest vocalists, including Chris Eisenberg, Raleigh Mosely II and Ariel Blue – and dancing.

Co-chairs are Amie Austin, Ph.D., Sarah Karp Renkliyuz and Taylor Karp Teymuri. 

Tickets are $350; proceeds will benefit Sunshine From Darkness’s “blue door services,” which will focus on emotional literacy for youth, and youth mental health research. Visit sunshinefromdarkness.org.
