It is with great pleasure to announce the recipients for the 2020 “Giving Back” event held annually at the Swordfish Grill & Tiki in Cortez, Florida.

The event is sponsored by website development company, Sande Caplin & Associates, The Swordfish Grill & Tiki and The Sarasota Post. We are happy to announce that Visit A Paradise Realty will be back again in 2020 as the “Music Sponsor” of the Giving Back event.



This year there will be 2 organizations as the recipients. Hunger’s End and the Blessing Bags Project have been chosen.

From the Hunger’s End Website: Hungers End’s mission is to “End Hunger in America, one community at a time”. We operate a food pantry and Blessing Closet serving 500-600 families each month, located at: 1802 14th St W, Bradenton, Fl 34205. 

Hungers End partners with many great organizations to provide free groceries, clothes, and personal hygiene products to those in need. We serve a free meal every Monday evening from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. All are welcome. 

From the Blessing Bags Project Website: Dedicated to the homeless and less fortunate by providing basic, critical needs. The Blessing Bags Project Inc. is a group of volunteers dedicated to our local homeless and less fortunate by providing hygiene products, food, clothing, and loving them just as they are. Children receive special hand sewn bags including toys, snacks, and a Beanie Baby to hug.

There is so much need to help local charities in the area. After interviewing several organizations and reading many pages of documents, The Blessing Bags Project and Hunger’s End were ultimately chosen.   Congratulations to Vicki & Carl Snyder of Hunger’s End and your entire team, and Betsy Plante and her team at the Blessing Bags Project.
