Sarasota area alum Tim Self saw the need for a UK alumni club in the Sarasota area. Tim began organizing events and gathering volunteers and in January of 2007 the group became an official UK alumni club.

The Sarasota UK Alumni Club is made up of UK Alumni Association members living in Sarasota, Charlotte, and Manatee Counties Florida.

The Sarasota UK Alumni Club has 12 board members and four officers who have been elected to serve. 

The Sarasota UK Alumni Club has organized several activities over the last two years including:
Attending a play about the Appalachian Coal Miner
UK Alumni Comedy Night
Happy Hours
Derby Party
Dinner Boat Cruise
Basketball and Football Watch Parties

The club has already raised nearly $1,000 toward a new scholarship endowment.

The Future
The Sarasota UK Alumni Club plans to continue their diverse offering of programs for the UK alums living in there area. Additionally, they plan to continue raising money for their scholarship endowment and to begin participating in student recruitment activities.
