A joint venture between the Powel Crosley Estate Foundation, the Bradenton Area Convention Center and Milan Catering and Event Design to showcase the estate for Sarasota events. Event planning, styling, entertainment and catering is provided by the Crosley Supper Club, a division of Milan Catering. A portion of the New Years Eve proceeds go to the Powel Crosley Foundation, a 501c non-profit focused on providing additional funds for this historical site.
Powel Crosley built the Florida winter home for his wife, Gwendolyn, in 1929. The two-and-a-half-story Mediterranean mansion was built in the southwest corner of Bradenton on a 60-acre parcel of land on Sarasota Bay. The 11,000-square-foot home has 21 rooms and 10 baths, and an adjacent carriage house has room for three cars and servants' quarters on the second floor. The home featured many innovations for its time, including a steel frame encased in cast stone, embedded pipes and wiring, and a 135-day construction schedule. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, Seagate was saved from commercial development and purchased for renovation by Manatee County
