The Junior League of Sarasota's 46th Annual Tour of Homes returned in-person for the first time since the start of the pandemic, and members of the nonprofit celebrated a successful event with a happy hour at CinéBistro on Feb. 25.
After two years of a scaled-back version of the tour, more than 500 attendees had the opportunity to admire six of Sarasota’s most exclusive homes face-to-face while supporting a good cause.
“All of the money that we raise goes to our signature focus, which is aging out of foster care,” said Junior League of Sarasota Committee Chair Kari-Jo Koshes.
Attendees had friendly debate over their favorite home with their drink of choice in hand. Silent auction items ranged from orchestra tickets to fly fishing lessons.
"(This event) is a way of connecting with our community. All of it comes back to the fact that we are raising money for a really important cause,” said Koshes.
