Join SAF for a very special evening at Ca' d'Zan, John and Mable Ringling's fabled Venetian
palace on gleaming Sarasota Bay. Enjoy a spectacular sunset from the marble terrace over
cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, then tour the home’s stately first floor as curator Ron McCarty
reveals its stories and secrets.
The three-course dinner with wine features Baby Spinach Salad, an Entree Duo of Grilled Filet Mignon and Pecan Encrusted Salmon, and finishes with Chocolate Mousse Cake.
This not-to-be-missed event honors SarasotaMOD's keynote speaker Lawrence Scarpa, FAIA, and takes place immediately following Mr. Scarpa's presentation at the Ringling School of Art + Design. Mr. Scarpa's firm, Brooks + Scarpa, is the 2014 Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National
