The Connoisseur Club announced it will donate a percentage of all money spent by Club members who designate themselves as supporters of the Sarasota Orchestra.
Connoisseur Club members enjoy a 10% benefit for dining or shopping at 15 different Klauber-Moulton-Mancini establishments.
If you are currently a Club member, simply log onto the Connoisseur Club’s website and designate yourself as a Sarasota Orchestra supporter in your Club account. Not only will you continue to enjoy the same 10% off benefit, but an additional 5% of your purchases will be donated to the Sarasota Orchestra.
If you aren’t a Connoisseur Club member but you have donated $100 or more to the Orchestra, the Club will waive the $10 initiation fee for joining the Club as part of the partnership. All donors to the Orchestra of $100 will receive a letter with their online code or they may call the Orchestra (Rebecca Campbell 941-487-2743.)
“By adopting the Sarasota Orchestra as our preferred charitable organization, we are giving back to our community and furthering the arts that make Sarasota and Manatee such a special place to live,” said Michael Klauber, co-owner of Michael’s on East.
Admiral Travel Becomes New Orchestra Partner
One of Sarasota's premier travel agencies, Admiral Travel International (ATI) has entered a partnership with the Sarasota Orchestra. Under the agreement reached with Admiral Travel owner Malaka Hilton, 5% of the value of trips booked by Orchestra patrons will be donated to the Sarasota Orchestra.
"All people need to do is identify themselves as a supporter of the Sarasota Orchestra when they book their trips with Admiral Travel," said Barbara Simon, Chief Development Officer for the Orchestra. "We are deeply appreciative of Malaka Hilton's generous gifting to the Sarasota Orchestra and her ability to think outside the box in supporting both the Orchestra and her travel clients."
As an additional benefit for Sarasota Orchestra patrons, Admiral Travel participates in the Gulf Coast Connoisseur Club. Connoisseur Club Card members earn and redeem points on dining, wine purchases and travel experiences with select establishments.
