17 Mar New Member Project – Sailor Circus Academy
On March 17, the Sailor Circus Academy, the Junior League of Sarasota, the Heart Gallery of Sarasota and the Children’s Guardian Fund partnered to host 50-plus foster children and their foster families for a special presentation of the Sailor Circus Academy.
The purpose of the event was to provide a light-hearted atmosphere in which children eligible for adoption were able to meet with prospective adoptive parents, allowing them to interact before the show.
The Sarasota-Bradenton area has 1,200-plus kids in foster care – a shockingly large number attributed to the opioid crisis. This opportunity was offered at no cost to the foster families.
