CFCAR Leadership joined hundreds of business owners and community leaders to celebrate the expansion of the Joe R. Lee Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida in late November of 2019.
The Fundraising Breakfast was designed to showcase the expanded facility that includes a new gym and other expanded facilities that will allow 100 more children to participate in the award-winning programs offered by this organization and to celebrate 75 years of success in the community.
CFCAR 2019 President Carol Tanner, CCIM, explained that CFCAR is dedicated to the future of Central Florida’s youth and said she was honored to represent CFCAR in donating to this community initiative. CFCAR leadership was invited by fellow CCIM Jennifer Pollock to attend the event.
At the Joe R. Lee Branch, located in the historic community of Eatonville, the center serves roughly 500 young people who need support and focuses on an outcome driven club experience that includes priority outcomes such as 97% of the teens abstaining from smoking and drinking, 99% of the club members advancing to the next grade level and where 96% try to help others when they see them in need.
