Amidst the highlight of Florida’s event season, Carol Pokap assembles restaurateurs, artists, designers and many other local businesses at Flight Source International’s private hangar at the Sarasota Airport for one of the most illustrious charity events of the year.
Because of last year’s success, Carol Prokap and Flight Source International have brought back a few of the the vendors from the previous event, including:
Darwin’s on 4th, an upscale restaurant in the heart of Sarasota, Florida. Chef Darwin Santa Maria has two restaurants in the area, Darwin’s and Selva Grill, both of which have received critical acclaim since opening their doors. Of his restaurants, Chef Darwin says, ““People today are well traveled and they have a taste for global cuisine that they expect to be exciting, new and delicious. Many travelers have discovered urban street foods in major cities around the world and have found these small plates to be a wonderful way to experience different cultures and cuisine styles. In my travels around the world, I always felt that street foods express the essence of a place. In my new restaurant I’m bringing those varied and original flavors and presentations back from the four corners of the earth for all of us to enjoy.” Darwin’s on 4th can be found at 1525 4th Street, Sarasota 34236or by visiting their website at www.darwinson4th.com.
