2 of the greatest entertainers in our area will be performing on Friday, February 16 at 6 pm, at the “Bikes on Main Block Party” on Main Street in Sarasota. The event benefits Suncoast Charities for Children.
Twinkle and her band “Rock Soul Radio”, and Billy Rice and the “Billy Rice Band” will be performing back to back at the biggest party of the year. Thunder By The Bay is a huge 3 day event and it’s back in Sarasota!
Billy Rice says, “Twinkle is one of the greatest singers that he has ever known”. Twinkle tells me that “her love and respect for Billy’s talent goes back many many years”!
So, save the date! And you never know, but I have a pretty good feeling that sometime during this special evening, Twinkle and Billy will do a few songs together! Hint, Hint!
The Sarasota Post will have much more information information coming soon along with an interview with Executive Directory, Lucy Nicandri.
From the Thunder By The Bay Website: SUNCOAST CHARITIES FOR CHILDREN is a 501(c)(3) that provides annual grants to the Suncoast Foundation impacting the lives of over 8,000 children, teens, and adults with special needs and their families. Did you know?
The Suncoast Foundation has constructed buildings valued at over $20 Million dollars in the Sarasota, Venice, and North Port area.
Non-profit agencies which occupy these buildings include The Haven (Sarasota), The Florida Center For Early Childhood (Sarasota & North Port), Children First (Venice), and Sarasota County Special Olympics (Venice). These non-profit agencies experience a significant savings with an annual lease payment of only $1 per year. Loveland Village in Venice also receives support.
Over the past four years (2013 – 2016), Suncoast Charities for Children has provided $414,000 in grant money to the Suncoast Foundation, so that necessary repairs and improvements could be made to these aging campus locations. This allows program and service money to remain untouched and be directed to clients who need it the most. Special agency project funding requests are also reviewed annually for funding.
