(Sarasota, FL) The Community Foundation of Sarasota County, through The Cyril and Dorothy Veinott Memorial Fund, recently awarded the Sarasota Concert Association (SCA) a $4,500 grant to help the organization support the utilization and evaluation of a Seat Advisor Box Office (SABO) software and ticketing system.
“We’re very grateful to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for this generous grant,” said Joy McIntyre, SCA’s board president. “We’ve negotiated an agreement with The Sarasota Ballet, which will allow us to utilize their SABO system for the 2014-2015 season. This state-of-the-art software offers online ticketing and will also help us analyze sales patterns, create mailing and email campaigns and manage donation campaigns.”
