SARASOTA, Fla. — Halfacre Construction Company, a Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction company, recently sponsored State College of Florida Foundation’s Evening Under the Stars event with a $2,000 sponsorship.
Held on Saturday, April 15 at the State College of Florida (SCF) campus in Venice, the time-honored cocktail event celebrated 30 years of family, friends and supporters. Attendees enjoyed music from the SCF Presidential Jazz Band and The Pops Orchestra, a blind auction tent and a wine cork pull. VIP tickets included a catered meal by Fins at Sharky’s, along with beer and wine, and a food truck was on-site for general admission to purchase. A firework show set to The Pops Orchestra concluded the night.
