ABC 7 held our third annual Suncoast Lifestyle Expo at the Sarasota Bradenton Convention Center on January 12th, 2013.  Thousands of you came out and enjoyed free sampling from local restaurants and businesses, fun demonstrations and giveaways from more than 180 exhibitors. While you were there, many of you also took advantage of free health screenings and even free advice from experts in the financial and medical industries.

We would like to thank all of you who came out to meet General Hospital’s Jason Thompson, who plays the dashing Dr. Patrick Drake…and Sarasota’s very own daredevil Nik Wallenda of Circus Sarasota! We also enjoyed meeting those of you who stopped by ABC 7’s booth and visited with members of Your Suncoast News Team, including: Scott Dennis, Lauren Dorsett, Bob Harrigan, Don Brennan, Hayley Wielgus, John Scalzi, Meredith Garofalo, Linda Carson, Josh Taylor and Max Winitz. We received hundreds of entries for our TV and iPad giveaway contests. Congratulations go out to Julie Gibson of Palmetto, who is the winner of a 60”, high-definition Panasonic television…and Sherol Cohen of Lakewood Ranch, who is the winner of the iPad with Retina display—both courtesy of ABC 7! We would also like to send our congratulations to the other winners of our exciting door prizes.

Congratulations to Julie Gibson of Palmetto...who is now the proud owner of a 60", hi-def Panasonic TV--courtesy of ABC 7! Thanks for joining us for our third annual Suncoast Lifestyle Expo!

To all of our attendees and exhibitors, thank you for making ABC 7’s Suncoast Lifestyle Expo a huge success. We’ll see you again at next year’s event—which will be even bigger and better!
