Congratulatons!
In 2013 we exceeded our goal of funding 6,800 wreaths for the Dec. 14th Wreaths Across America Sarasota Ceremony.  Awesome work.  Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Wreaths Across America Sarasota is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice. The Wreaths Across America mission is to “Remember, Honor, and Teach”. The annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery started in 1992 is now performed around the country at various locations that include the Sarasota National Cemetery that now has over 7,500 gravesites.                  
                              
Individuals and businesses can either purchase a wreath for $15 each or they can donate whatever amount they choose.  The cut off date for donations is December 1st, 2014.  If you would like your donation to sponsor a wreath to be layed at a specific gravesite either complete the sponsorship form and return it by fax, email or mail or you can simply donate online and let us know the name of the veteran, burial section, and burial site in the special instructions upon checkout.
