A magical evening awaits under the Banyan Trees & African Sky at Selby Gardens as Chef Anna presents a traditional “bush dinner” perfectly paired with South African wines.
Inspired by the Gulf Coast Connoisseur Club travels, the passion to support digital learning in rural areas of South Africa, and to honor an important legacy, our very own Safari Sarasota was created! Please join us for SAFARI SARASOTA events with Chef Anna Ridgewell from South Africa’s Londolozi Game Reserve! Michael and Terri Klauber invite you to join them for a series of exciting events this fall.
Held bi-annually in Sarasota since 2013, a series of “Safari Sarasota” events benefit the All Heart Fund, which was created in honor of Leanna Knopik, a 16-year-old Sarasota native who passed away almost a year after visiting some of South Africa’s most remote communities. It had been Leanna’s dream to support children and education in South Africa and, over the last two years, the All Heart Fund, in partnership with South African not-for-profit organization, Good Work Foundation, has provided digital literacy access to over 1,500 South African schoolchildren per week.
