Care Net Manasota’s 19th Annual Gala for Life will be held on Friday, January 27, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota, FL. This year, we are honored to have as our keynote speaker, Mr. Mike Long.

He is a National Consultant for Project Reality and has conducted in-service trainings for over 23,000 educators in 43 states on how to effectively teach character education in their classroom. Mike is the author of two books, “Teenagers: Everyone Is NOT Doing It” and “Parents: Everyone Is NOT Doing It” published by Jameson Books. He has spoken at thousands of parent-teen conferences, community programs, school assemblies, and youth rallies nationwide. He has also appeared on many radio and television news shows and he has produced many successful television specials for various cable networks including CNN, ABC, NBC, TNN and MTV. Mike is a dynamic speaker you won’t want to miss!
The evening will also include client videos and testimonies, highlights of the ways Care Net Manasota has made an impact over the last year, and we will be sharing exciting news about all that God is doing in the ministry. I hope you will join us for this fun and inspiring evening!
