In addition to a schedule of rigorous classes, clubs and athletics, many Sarasota high school students need to complete 30 to 100 volunteer hours at an area nonprofit to graduate or qualify for scholarships. Fortunately, there are plenty to choose from in our region, and Sarasota Magazine has assembled 65 nonprofits in one room on one night so young people—and not so young—can survey the good causes and talk to staff at these organizations, who are passionate about making Sarasota and Manatee a better place. Our GeneroCITY event takes place 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Sarasota Municipal Auditorium, 801 N. Tamiami Trail. Entry is free.  And by the way, volunteering is not just good for a resume; it’s good for the heart.
