Forks & Corks is our organization’s largest annual fundraiser, bringing critical marketing dollars to the Sarasota-Manatee Originals to promote dining in local, independently owned restaurants. The pandemic has had a profound impact on the hospitality industry on a global scale. Our Member Restaurants have emerged as leaders, setting the standard for safety protocols, providing food and other resources to their community in need and pivoting continuously to best meet customer demand. Our regional independent restaurants are a strong community of professionals who work together, not just in times of need, but in the individual challenges that we all face daily. We ask that you join hands with us to shine a light on the challenges our industry is facing.
