Charities

The Club desires to be a supportive citizen within Sarasota County, with a focus on the greater Venice community.  We look to support those that need a helping hand, as well as those first responders within our community that protect and serve all of us.  Our support can be in the form of dollars and/or time.  We recognize that doing good for others is not just an act but a core value of our club.

Venice Police Department

Our members in 2021 made a financial contribution that went towards the purchase of a ballistic vest for the Department newest member of its canine unit.

South County Food Pantry

Members are encouraged to make small cash donations at our monthly club meetings that will go to purchase food to feed the hungry living in the greater Venice area.

Back Pack Angels

Members are encouraged to bring personal hygiene products to our monthly meetings where they are collected and given to benefit the homeless/needy children in our community which will improve self-esteem and enable them to remain in school, clean and well groomed.

Louis & Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust

Our donations that are designated to go to the South County Food Pantry are donated through the trust where the trust does a 100% gift match.
