FMP’s Cultural Exchange Event Brings ‘Everything Buffalo’ to Sarasota, with Plans Underway to Export Sarasota to Buffalo this Summer
February 21, 2017 – Sarasota FL, and Buffalo, NY – Buffalo-bred and Sarasota-based Tim Mitten, founder of Full Moon Promotions and Full Moon Properties (FMP), today announced that FMP’s ‘Everything Buffalo’ March 1, 2017 benefit event has sold out. 750 tickets and over 30 sponsors have committed to making this the first and largest Buffalo-themed event in Sarasota history, which appropriately enough is being held at the regional-favorite White Buffalo Saloon. http://www.EverythingBuffaloParty.com
“I am amazed at the level of interest in Sarasota for Buffalo-themed foods and entertainment,” said Mitten. “When developing ‘Everything Buffalo’ I didn’t realize just how large the Western New York contingent is in our gulf coast region, and the response has been amazing and heartening. We’re looking forward to sharing the tastes and sounds of my original hometown with new and old friends here on March first. We are deep into planning our next cultural exchange and are working with sponsors and entertainers now to take a Sarasota-style Chillounge Night upscale outdoor themed event to Buffalo this summer on August 19, 2017.”
“The benefiting charity for ‘Everything Buffalo’ was created by a dear friend from Buffalo, Jackie Fanara, in her late husbands’ name – the Joe Fanara Music Foundation – which will support music education for children in Buffalo and Sarasota,” Mitten concluded.
Mitten lived in Buffalo and its suburbs in his formative years, working corporate gigs with HSBC and Verizon and serving at the board level on Computers for Children, Junior Achievement and Shea’s Rising Stars Boards. He moved to Florida in 2003 and has since built FMP into an event powerhouse, while at the same time working as one of our area’s most tireless and dedicated boosters. Tim secured his Florida Real Estate License in 2015, joining forces with Wagner Realty owner and former Buffalonian David Eckel to bring Buffalonians to Sarasota – www.BUF2SRQ.com
