Join us as we honor our individual One World Award individual winner Lou Ann Palmer and One World Award organization winner Sarasota Christian School.  Funding resulting from our gala is what allowed us to bring 27 young ladies known as the NOOA Dancers from Tel Mond, Israel to Sarasota for multiple performances in Sarasota schools and the public in December, provided the support for our Sister City winners of the Florida Studio Theater annual young playwrights competition in May, visits from city officials from Vladimir, Russia, Perpignan, France and Dunfermline, Scotland.  This year we around counting on funds raised from the 2013 for assist in our hosting a major 3-day  conference in Sarasota in November that result in college and high school students from our Sister Cities with experts from universities and organizations in those cities and those in our region.
