Thanks a Million

The Van Wezel Foundation’s 2020 INSPIRATION Gala was a huge success as guests and philanthropists celebrated our mission to create a world-class performing arts center that enriches the community, supports arts education and inspires young minds. Three Sarasota County school teachers were recognized for their outstanding work to inspire students to learn through the performing arts. In addition, Booker High Schools’ Jet Stream Acapella Ensemble surprised guests with an uplifting song, leading up to an amazing show by legendary rocker, John Fogerty.
