Imagining Freedom Culinary Tasting and Marketplace, a unique dining and shopping experience, is the signature fundraiser for Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center. STAC is honored to showcase restaurants, caterers, farmers and retailers that are dedicated to supply chains that do not include trafficked labor all in one place during Imagining Freedom at FSU’s Turnbull Center. Your ticket purchase or sponsorship helps provide assistance to human trafficking survivors of all ages and education programs throughout the Big Bend.
This enjoyable and informative evening features dishes made with beautiful and healthy ingredients provided by local restaurants, caterers and farmers and coordinated by Susan Turner and Food Glorious Food. Beer pairings with unique selections from local breweries will be offered with select dishes. Our guests also enjoy strolling through The Marketplace to purchase products such as coffee, baskets, jewelry and other goods from retailers that are dedicated to fair trade and ethical labor.
A member of the National Human Trafficking Hotline, STAC provides support to survivors of sex and labor trafficking and teaches people throughout our region how to recognize, report and prevent trafficking. Your support helps make this work possible. Will you help keep these programs and services going by sponsoring or attending Imagining Freedom?
