Grammy-winning musician Kenny Loggins took Van Wezel Foundation supporters to the Danger Zone during the 2023 Inspiration Gala on March 10.
Guests filled outside the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for the annual event, which benefits the organization's many arts and education programs.
The evening started with cocktails on the bay as the sun set. Guests mingled and —keeping in line with the night's Top Gun-adjacent theme — posed for pictures with a Tom Cruise lookalike.
Once the cocktail hour had concluded, guests entered the outdoor tent space to enjoy dinner and hear words from Van Wezel Foundation figures about their appreciation for the continued support and their plans for the new Sarasota Performing Arts Center.
It was then time for the night's entertainment where guests filled the performing space to hear Kenny Loggins himself rock out.
