Support first responders from afar by cheering for them at 6:30 p.m. every night in your front yard.
Michael Saunders & Company wants to help Sarasota stay connected with its community from a distance with a city-wide celebration of first responders, including police officers, firefighters, nurses, doctors, and essential workers.
Raise a glass, clap your hands and shout from your balcony, window, driveway or yard to show support at 6:30 p.m. every night. The first celebration happened on April 3.
If you record a video or snap a picture be sure to share is on social media with the hashtags #SuncoastClaps and #SRQClaps.
