"Singing Valentines" For That Special Someone:

For a donation of $50, a Barbershop Quartet, dressed in appropriate costume, will appear at any place in the Sarasota/Bradenton metropolitan area on Valentines Day and present a loved one with a long stemmed rose, a Valentine’s Greeting Card naming the sponsor, and a small box of chocolates. The Quartet will top off the event with a moving serenade of a well-known love song. Proceeds are designated for Chorus of the Keys community support programs.
