Edith and Herb Winston


Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota received a $50,000 gift from Edith Winston, a longtime supporter of the organization. The Herb and Edith Winston Endowment Fund will be directed to operating expenses and educational programs. Winston, a former occupational therapist and entrepreneur who holds 44 patents, named the fund in memory of her late husband of nearly 50 years.



Gettel Automotive associates have donated $6,400, which will be equally matched by the Gettel Automotive Family of Dealerships, to the Toys for Tots Drive. The community is invited to bring unwrapped toys to the following drop-off locations, and will receive a $10 coupon toward an oil change or tire rotation:

Toyota of Lakewood, 5959 E. S.R. 64, Bradenton

Gettel Toyota, 6243 14th St. W., Bradenton

Gettel Hyundai, 2503 1st St. E., Bradenton



Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast has launched its “100 Men in 100 Days” campaign, encouraging the men of Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto, Highlands, Hardee, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Glades and Henry counties to become a Big Brother and volunteer with the organization. Currently 286 boys across these counties are waiting to be matched with a positive role model.
