Blast On The Bay Fun Run for Suncoast Charities

Suncoast Charities for Children has organized the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix Festival for 35 years and the July 4th Bayfront Fireworks since 2008.  Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been forced to cancel both events which generated a significant amount of revenue for the charity. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected everyone, but it was particularly difficult for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We hope you will consider making a donation. Your donation will help Suncoast Charities for Children maintain financial flexibility to continue supporting six local non-profit agencies that offer programs and services to over 5,000+ clients with special needs.
