Giving Challenge 2018
Bocilla Islands Conservancy Inc. participated in the 2018 Giving Challenge #BeTheOne, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota and The Patterson Foundation. The Patterson Foundation provided a 1:1 match for all unique donations, up to $100 per donor. The 24 hour challenge yielded $12,206 for the Conservancy.
An "I GAVE" party was held at the home of Barbara DeYulio with a theme reminiscent of a blood drive. Red was the color theme for the evening complete with Bloody Marys, pizza and a visit from Nurse Vicki and Count Dracula.
