+ Circus Sarasota 2011 Gala “Under the Big Top” Honoring Michael Klauber and Phil Mancini
6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21 • Under the Big Top at Tuttle Avenue and 12th Street • Tickets $175 guest, $250 patron • Reservations 355-9335
This year, one of Sarasota’s favorite events will honor two of Sarasota’s favorite men when the Circus Sarasota gala salutes Michael Klauber and Phil Mancini on the 25th anniversary of their restaurant, Michael’s On East. And how fitting: The honorees are alimentary acrobats, social strong men and the ultimate quick-change act. Just watch them transform their ballroom from a children’s candy land in the afternoon to a sophisticated soiree in the evening. Why, it’s almost magic!
Proceeds from the event will be dedicated to completing Circus Sarasota’s capital campaign, which is purchasing the show’s own Big Top, named for Ulla Searing in honor of her generous bequest. Wardrobe call for guests is “circus glamorous with sensible shoes” — costumes, as always, are welcome.
