The Ringling’s beautiful 66-acre campus is one of the largest museum/university complexes in the nation. The Ringling preserves and promotes the legacy of John and Mable Ringling, educating and engaging a large and diverse audience. Guests are able to take delight in a world renowned collection of fine art, an historic mansion, two circus museums and a jewel-box of a theatre, all while overlooking the Sarasota Bay. The Ringling will benefit from any events held on its grounds.
The Grand Tasting silent auction will benefit the All Faiths Food Bank.
The mission of All Faiths Food Bank is to feed those in need, reduce food waste, and educate the community as to the issue of hunger and nutrition. Through various programs for children, Veterans and Community Partners we offer hunger relief in our community.
You may assume that extremely poor or homeless people are the main recipients of food donations. Sadly, that assumption is wrong. While All Faiths Food Bank does serve those populations, the majority of people we reach daily are employed and earning money. They just don’t earn enough. All Faiths Food Bank collects and distributes food to 190 partner agencies and programs throughout Sarasota and Desoto counties. Our partners then give that food, along with other vital services, directly to those in need.
