The Ora, Sarasota’s new premier event venue, announced today that Michael’s On East will be the venue’s exclusive food and beverage caterer.  Michael Klauber and Phil Mancini, partners at Michael’s On East, will bring the famed restaurant’s innovative cuisine and impeccable service to a wide range of events at The Ora. From intimate gatherings to upscale weddings and corporate conferences, The Ora has a variety of spaces that can accommodate any event. At 30,000 square feet, The Ora is among the largest and most elegant event venues in the region. At the heart of The Ora, designed by the architecture firm FleischmannGarciaMaslowski, is the majestic 9,500-square-foot Ballroom, one of the largest in the area. With soaring ceilings, stunning light sculptures and the flexibility to divide the room into smaller spaces, the Ballroom provides a sophisticated backdrop for gatherings up to 1,000 people. The concept of The Ora was conceived by the leadership and board of the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, which recognized the lack of luxury event space in the region and set out to create an elegant, versatile venue to meet that need. In addition to the quality of its architecture and finishings, The Ora will have state-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities throughout, including projection mapping technology, an exciting video technique that can transform a space into a creative, immersive experience.  Michael’s On East will offer an extensive selection of food and beverage options for events at The Ora, with plans to work closely with corporate meeting specialists, wedding planners and other event professionals, along with anyone who wants to have a distinctive, upscale event. The professional team has vast experience accommodating a diverse range of dietary requirements from vegetarian to vegan, gluten-free, and kosher.  Tandem Construction is completing the final finishes on The Ora, located at 578 McIntosh Road in Sarasota. The location is convenient for guests throughout Florida: It’s 3 miles off I-75 and 4 miles from downtown Sarasota, and offers over 400 dedicated, well-lit parking spaces. The Ora is excited to host its first event in February. For information about the venue or to inquire about booking a space, visit the website at TheOrasrq.com, or contact Deanna McGrath, Director of Operations, at dmcgrath@theorasrq.com.
