Sunset This Week: Mary Szaroleta, Museum of Fine Arts

St. Petersburg Museum of Fine ArtsWe will be at the Hilton this week, for a wonderful program from Mary Szaroleta, the Associate Curator of Public Programs at the Museum of Fine Arts.

The mission of MFA is to increase and diffuse knowledge and appreciation of art, to collect and preserve objects of artistic interest and merit, to protect works of art, to provide facilities for research, and to offer instruction and opportunities for aesthetic enjoyment of art.

How lucky are we to have such a great resource right in our backyard?

Come hear more about this gem with us on Thursday!

Sunset This Week: Surfers for Autism

Surfers for AutismThis week on the Sunset Club calendar is a Saturday service project with Surfers for Autism:
4th Annual Bay Area Surfers For Autism Beach Festival
Saturday, July 12th
Pass-a-Grille Beach, St. Petersburg

The Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research.

At their beach events, like the one we are volunteering at, the surfers are provided a safe, fun, judgement free environment where highly skilled surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, fire engine tours and much more.

This project is a club favorite and we are all very excited to get out to the beach on Saturday! Click here to SIGN UP and join us!
