Harry Leopold Session

Leopold has created a five-part lecture and social series about philanthropy in partnership with the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee and the Lifelong Learning Academy.

Called “Discover the Joy of Giving,” the series will be in Selby Auditorium on the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus on Jan. 12 and Jan. 26 and Feb. 2, Feb. 9 and Feb. 16.

The sessions run from 3-5 p.m. and the cost of the course is $100. It includes materials and five catered cocktail receptions at the Powel Crosley Estate adjacent to the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee.

Individuals of all ages from all walks of life are invited to participate and meet others who wish to learn about the relationship between giving, happiness and health, said Kelley Lavin, who will moderate the series.

“All proceeds will benefit the Lifelong Learning Academy,” said Leopold, who also attends the academy.
