Hundreds drank in the beautiful scenery of Sarasota Bay on Tuesday, April 2, as Pique Nique Sur La Baie returned to New College of Florida and marked its 31st year on Sarasota’s social calendar.


The distinctive event event drew 515 guests to the College’s bayfront. This year, students participated by mingling and socializing with the region’s finest supporters of New College and the Jane Bancroft Cook Library.


Pique Nique featured a fashion show presented by The Met, the fashion house and day spa on St. Armand’s Circle, and lunch from Michael’s On East, the Sarasota landmark restaurant. The “Presenting Sponsor” was the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
