Girls Inc. put on a show during its annual Celebration Luncheon at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium on April 20.
Hundreds gathered for the annual affair benefiting the nonprofit's programs for young women in the community. The event also recognized a number of local figures including Renee Phinney, Cynthia Howard, Charlotte Bauman, Claudia Cardillo and Sofia Zavala for their work in the community.
The program started with a lively drum line number from Girls Inc. members and staff that marched through the auditorium and guests took their seats.
Board chair Chris Pinckney joined co-chairwomen Kay Mathers and LaShawn Frost in delivering opening remarks before guests heard from president and CEO Angie Stringer.
The luncheon's honorees were later presented with their awards.
