About Us

Team AVA is an active, generous group of volunteers and donors contributing to worthy charitable causes in Sarasota County. Named after beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend Ava Arbitman Hodous, this team serves as a vibrant memorial to her.

Thanks Sharyn and Leigh, the inspiration behind Team AVA!
