+ Lots of love on ‘The Love Boat’
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Suncoast held its fourth annual Déjà Vu gala Saturday, April 27, at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota. Chaired by Susan Brennan, this year’s gala was themed “The Love Boat,” based on the hit made-for-TV movie and TV show, which ran from 1977 through 1986.
While on the “cruise,” guests enjoyed bidding on the silent auction and watching performances by the Sailor Circus and Empire Ballroom dancers. Funds raised from the gala will benefit the one-on-one mentoring program, run by Big Brothers Big Sisters.

+ Kings of the kitchen
Who says men can’t cook? Some of Sarasota and Bradenton’s most prominent business and community men came together Sunday, April 28, at Longboat Key Club Harbourside to prepare some of their favorite recipes.
Chairwomen Beverly Bartner, Molly Schechter and Margaret Wise, along with Judi Gallagher, made sure that the event went off without a hitch and even garnered some new volunteers for next year’s Men Who Cook event.
Watch the video below to see the “Parade of Chefs.” Also, take a look at our online gallery and check next week’s Diversions for more coverage.
