Sarasota, FL – The community is invited to celebrate national adoption month at a family-friendly event this Saturday, Nov. 7 at Manatee Technical College in Bradenton. The celebration event will include free food and fun activities for the entire family.

The annual event hosted by the Safe Children Coalition, in partnership with Manatee Technical College and the Heart Gallery of Sarasota, provides adoptive families and families interested in adopting, a day to spend together in a fun-filled environment.
