In 1999, Ira Barsky and Ed Sarbey formed a coalition of animal-welfare supporters to combat the euthanizing of adoptable pets in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. They founded Animal Rescue Coalition (ARC) and purchased a mobile spay or neuter clinic to help reduce pet overpopulation. Since 2002, the organization has sterilized more than 32,000 cats and dogs, primarily offering its services to low-income families that could not otherwise afford the procedure. Additionally, ARC's emergency medical fund supplements this no-kill approach by paying for the medical supplies and medicines needed by sick or injured animals picked up by Sarasota County Animal Services. Drs. Nan Rosenberry and David Smith then provide complementary treatment for any animals brought into Bay Road Animal Hospital. ARC also sponsors a feral cat program and an adoption effort to ensure cats and dogs enter permanent and loving homes.

Casinos and cocktails usually go hand in hand, so National Bartenders and Casino School took the natural next step by creating a place where students could learn about both under the same roof. Aspiring mixologists earn their certifications at professional bartending classes helmed by expert bartenders who combine lectures with hands-on instruction behind their fully equipped bar. They also lead TIPS certification, which teaches students to identify potential alcohol-related problems such as underage drinking and drunk driving. The school’s complimentary post-graduation employment assistance has helped past students land jobs at hotels, casinos, resorts, nightclubs, country clubs, and after-hours teachers' lounges.National Bartenders and Casino School also teaches card sharks the basics of Texas hold'em, stud, omaha, tournament poker, and other styles of gaming during their Poker Dealer program. They prepare students for pre-employment auditions at casinos, and also outfit them with the basic skills needed to run pub poker and charity events.
