Microsoft is celebrating its grand opening at University Town Center (UTC) by showing its support for local nonprofits. The company has pledged a grant for $500,000 worth of computer software to Mote Marine Laboratory — and you’re invited to come celebrate with us.

On June 11, the public is invited to join Mote and get a first look at Microsoft’s new store at UTC, 140 University Town Center Drive, Sarasota, Fla.

To celebrate with us, Mote supporters can meet at the designated Mote area in the store at 9 a.m. on June 11. Wearing a Mote logo is encouraged but not required.

RSVP now to declare that you will join in the celebration with Mote.
