Welcome to the Harvard Club of Sarasota!
Founded over 54 years ago, the Harvard Club of Sarasota is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving Harvard alumni in Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte Counties. Membership in the Harvard Club of Sarasota is open to all Harvard alumni residing in our tri-county area and is an excellent way to stay in touch with the University, receive the latest updates on important issues, and build valuable relationships that last a lifetime.
Ours is an amazingly vibrant and active community of Harvard alumni and friends. It is my distinct honor and a privilege to serve as your Club President!
As a Member of the Harvard Club of Sarasota, you will enjoy:
· Connecting: with Harvard’s global community of alumni, faculty, and experts across a multitude of disciplines as well as with local community leaders, school administrators, prospective students, and charitable and professional organizations throughout the region.
· New year-round! Club access with over 20 events annually, including: new summer Happy Hours and “in-season” social networking & “Young Alumni” events, our ever-popular “All Alumni Welcome Party” (scheduled this year for Sunday, November 6, 2016, 4:30-7:00 pm at The Field Club!), scrumptious luncheons and evenings with Harvard faculty and celebrity speakers, special “behind-the-scenes” tours and access to local Arts, business executives, and so much more!
· Opportunities for personal and professional growth: Partner with fellow alumni and friends to grow your career, support local college fairs and career days, interview prospective students, mentor local students, present Harvard Prize Book Awards, volunteer in our schools, engage more deeply in our community, and support Harvard in so many other ways.
· Advanced ticket purchase options and priority reservations: for members-only events and limited capacity events, including first-in-line tickets for our annual Red Sox baseball game outing.
