VENICE, Fla. - Sarasota County honored its unsung heroes Tuesday night: volunteers in our schools.

The Pals Partners in Education annual recognition celebration took place in Venice. The annual event honors the top student, senior and adult volunteers, as well as the top business partners in all Sarasota County schools.

Event organizers say school programs and students would suffer without those who selflessly sacrifice their time to help.

The Sarasota County School District has thousands of volunteers.

ABC 7’s own Scott Dennis, who also volunteers at his daughter's elementary school, served as the night's emcee.
