SARASOTA, Fla. (May 5, 2020) – Last week, the team at Ian Black Real Estate delivered popcorn gift boxes to several locations around Sarasota-Manatee to thank key workers for their dedication to caring for the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each gift box contained 48 individual packages of gourmet popcorn from Sarasota’s Tropical Shores Gourmet Popcorn Co. and thank-you notes to nurses, doctors, firefighters and other key workers. Ian Black Real Estate team members delivered the boxes to:
- Sarasota Memorial Hospital
- Blake Medical Center
- Tidewell Hospice
- Sarasota County Fire Station 1
- Bradenton Fire Department
- Doctors Hospital of Sarasota
- Venice Regional Bayfront Health
- Lakewood Ranch Medical Center
“These dedicated professionals are working so hard and putting their own health at risk as they protect and care for others in our community,” said Ian Black, partner and founder of Ian Black Real Estate, Sarasota’s premier commercial real estate brokerage firm. “It’s the least we can do to show our thanks with a little treat that will hopefully make them smile and let them know we appreciate what they do.”
In March, Ian Black Real Estate also donated $2,500 to Season of Sharing – a partnership between the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, the Herald-Tribune Media Group and other nonprofit agencies – to support those affected by COVID-19..
