Nate Jacobs and The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe will entertain at the Book Sale Luncheon.

The time for the Annual PAWC Book, Bag, Scarf and Jewelry Sale has come upon us. Barbara Link and Sammy Ulbrick have been working all year to ensure that this event will be the best of its kind in Sarasota. In addition to the mountains of books they have collected, all kinds of bags will be available. Vintage, evening, tote and even golf bags will be plentiful. A large assortment of jewelry and scarves will also help you tie your look together. Make a fashion statement, save money and help your community all at the same time.

This is also your opportunity to fight clutter for a good cause. Channel your inner Marie Kondo and look for items to donate. Book donations, as well as gently-used scarves, handbags, golf bags and even jewelry, will be very welcome. Please bring your donations to the front door of the Palm Aire Country Club at 9 AM on Wednesday, March 13th or contact blink22542@gmail.com for alternate arrangements.

Hours of the sale are: Wednesday, March 13th at 12–8 PM, Thursday, March 14th- 10AM-3 PM and Friday, March 15th - 10AM to 3PM. Remember, the sale is open to the public and not limited to Palm Aire Country Club members.

To make this event even more spectacular, Nate Jacobs and the renowned Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe will entertain at the book sale luncheon on Friday March 15th.

The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe. (WBTT) was founded in December 1999, as a Sarasota non-profit by actor, singer, director, and playwright Nate Jacobs. This is the only professional black theatre company on Florida’s west coast.

WBTT produces musicals, comedies and thought-provoking dramas. The Troupe also provides community outreach and education programs. Programs include: summer musical theatre camp, a Jazz Links program for high schools, and a Young Artists series in which aspiring artists produce and perform in their own individual concerts.

WBTT has grown from a grassroots organization into a professional theatre company with a five-show season. WBTT has also mentored and inspired many African-American youth and young adults who have gone on to work professionally in theaters, on television, and for major record companies.
