Woman of the Year

Every year the Democratic Womens Club of Sarasota County honors an influential woman in our community who works to better Sarasota. These are women who are advocates for equality, fairness, and empowerment. They embody our values as Democratic women and demonstrate the power of dedication by leading by example.

In 2019, we celebrated the life and work of Christine Jennings  and her contributions to our community as immediate past chair of the Sarasota County Democratic Party and former candidate for the U.S. Congress; former CEO of the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe; and Founder and President of Sarasota Bank. In 2018 she was inducted into the Community Video Archives Hall of Fame.

Stay tuned for updates on our 2020 Woman of the Year celebration!
