Thank you to our sponsors!

We are so grateful to the generous individuals and businesses who have sponsored the Sunshine from Darkness Journey to Wellness Symposium and Inspiring Hope Dinner in the past. Their generosity continues to help to fund research that could transform people’s lives and enhance their well-being as well supporting a local agency — First Step of Sarasota — that provides critically needed mental health services in our local community.

We hope that many of these sponsors will continue their support in 2021 and be joined by many more. The 2021 sponsors will be announced closer to the events.
