Sarasota/Manatee Branch

Welcome from Sarasota/Manatee President, Amanda Fernandez

We are so excited for this new year in fundraising and supporting Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, along with our Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care location in Sarasota. Thank you for all the hard work, dedication and support from all of our members and volunteers. Together, we help change lives.

All Children's Hospital Guild is excited to begin fundraising for the second year for their 4-year Pledge to raise $1,350,000 to support and enhance Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Nursing Excellence Program and the purchase of a new, state of the art, pediatric ambulance to support Transport Services.

Along with helping the main hospital, the funds raised in Sarasota go to support the Outpatient Care location in Sarasota and local community programs. One of our newest program is the Neonatal Abstinence Clinic in Sarasota County. The NAS clinic has helped save or improve the lives of over 100 babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

This year, we are excited to continue our fundraising raising efforts with our signature fundraiser, the 2017 Miracle Ball.  The Miracle Ball will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the Sarasota Yacht Club. This special evening will be filled with dinner, dancing, and bidding for a cause. This event is not to be missed!

The Sarasota/Manatee Branch meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (August - May) at 9:30 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. at the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care Sarasota (located at 5881 Rand Blvd, Sarasota) and other various locations. Please email me to find out the next location and time we will be meeting. 

It would be an honor to have you join us and, together, work to improve the lives of children in our area. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help. I look forward to meeting you at the next event or Branch meeting.
