The Israel Tennis Centers Foundation came to Longboat Key on Thursday, March 1. It is something the non-profit organization dedicated to the social, psychological and physical development of Israeli children through tennis has been doing for about 30 years. The children from a handful of the 14 tennis centers across Israel showed off the tennis skills they acquired through the program and shared their stories at dinner. For instance, Nadine Fahoum a Muslim Arab from Hafia attributes much of her success to the doors the Tennis Centers opened. She will be graduating from Duke University where she is on athletic scholarship and is the number one singles player for tennis. The event was held at the tennis gardens and also at the harborside dining room at Longboat Key Club and Resort.

On Thursday, March 1, Save Our Seabirds hosted a very elegant and sold-out affair. Its walkways were lined with tiki torches and candles, people sipped on cocktails and enjoyed appetizers served by Longboat Key Club and Resort staff. A string duet played accompanied by squawking serenades from the birds. Bird was the word at this event; the soiree and auction was a fundraiser held to spread awareness about the non-profit facility and its injured birds, rehab and release efforts. The evening also featured prosthetic expert Kevin Carroll, the man known for his collaboration efforts for Winter the Dolphin’s tail. Carroll has been spending his free time donating prosthetic legs to Sand Hill Cranes at Save Our Seabirds. He was presented with a certificate of appreciation for the work he has done.
