Hi upper school rowing parents,
Sarasota Regatta Dinner for parents and siblings will be at Sophie’s at Saks Fifth Avenue located on the second floor at The Mall at University Town Center. The mall is adjacent to Nathan Benderson Park and is about 14 miles from the hotel.
Feel free to gather at Sophie’s Bar for a cocktail, beer, wine and conversation at 5:30. Dinner begins at 6:30 pm. The chef has created a special menu for the evening. They have graciously allowed us to have individual checks and will not charge a service fee. We will have the whole place to ourselves. ESJ only.
The only downside to the event is the size. We can only fit 56 people into Sophie's for a sit down dinner. We have had to limit our number. Right now we have 52 people signed up as a yes. We have room for three more. If you are interested and don't get into one of the last three spots, please sign up as a maybe. If anyone drops out, we can add you in. Even if you can't get in for dinner, stop by at 5:30 for drinks. If you are signed up to attend and you decide you can't make it, please change your RSVP . Thanks
A special thank you to Patti Joyce for organizing this event. It was quite a project but she pulled it off. Almost every place she called wouldn't take our number of people without a minimum $40 a head and a very limited menu. When you see her at the event make sure you let her know how much you love it.
