It can be described as Christmas in July for the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office. This morning they were awarded a check of $165,957.70 from the Ferrari Group of Sarasota. The money will go to the Flight to the North Pole Foundation that started in 1985. The program provides families throughout the year with medical supplies needed and an event is held each year in December. The annual Christmas event provides children and families with a fun-filled day they may not otherwise get to have. Manatee County Sheriff Rick Wells said the mission is the same as when they first started the program years ago.
