Southwest Florida Making an Impact
So many in this community took action after learning of the devastation in the Bahamas due to Hurricane Dorian. A local restaurant, Artichoke and Company brought the community together for a 4 course Bahamian wine dinner with cocktails, and Pop Up auction…all for the Bahamas.
Can I mention, this was a fundraising event that was put together in about 10 days! Local people and businesses stepped forward and provided the support needed to make the event a success. We were certainly happy to be a sponsor! 🙂
“The importance of giving to others can’t be understated and that’s because the secret to living is giving. It’s not about what you do for yourself, It’s about how you are able to better the lives of the people around you – your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world.”
This cocktail hour, 4 course authentic Bahamian meal, DJ, dancing, charity Pop Up auction and meeting of a Bahamian family that was affected, turned into raising more than $20,000! 100% of these proceeds are going to be donated to The Islands of the Bahamas!
Thankful to Artichoke & Company and the other organizations involved for allowing us to be a sponsor and participate in such a wonderful event.
Once you start giving back to your community, see how your actions encourage others to get involved. Create a ripple of positive impact.
