Dear Visitor,

In college, I enjoyed psychology and sociology, focusing on the challenges of the "challenged."

I was a fan of Mahatma Gandhi, especially, his quote “If we are to reach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children” – and felt that helping children would fulfill my time on earth for the Lord.

As part of my curriculum, I tutored children in depressed areas and was taken back when I walked into their homes and saw and heard about their challenges. 

Once entering the workforce, I was glad to help my boss when he asked me to push a child's wheelchair at a circus on the weekend for a children's foundation.

I was so touched talking to the child that I decided to focus on non-profits for children as I developed my career.

Over the years, while serving on-profit boards for children, I was drawn mostly to charities that had golf tournament fundraisers, as golf is a passion.  

I was honored to have received the:

  • 2007 KPMG CHAIRMAN's AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN VOLUNTEERISM​​

As a marketing professional, my role on non-profit boards was predominantly fundraising programs to retain existing and find new donors. 

My top 3 experiences were:

  • I was a board member of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation in Clearwater, Florida, one of the designated international Points of Light.  Our charter was to instill self-esteem in young people who were victims of abuse, had experienced minor brushes with the law, or had suffered other hardships.  ​

  • was a board member of HANDY, which currently serves 50,000 children in Ft. Lauderdale and stands for "Helping Abused, Neglected, Disadvantaged Youth."  At the time, I brought the kids out to teach them golf and play at Grande Oaks.  They loved it because it is the golf club where they filmed the movie, Caddyshack.  ​

  • I was a board member for LIFE Concepts, which stood for "Living in a Family Environment."  We built and managed group homes.  The project that I enjoyed most was fundraising for a large craft center that was built – so that each day buses could bring the physically and mentally challenged children from each group home to learn and have fun.​

Another aspect of my work was training Executive Directors of non-profit organizations at the national NSFRE event – on how to implement successful fundraising programs.  NSFRE was the National Society of Fundraising Executives, now the Association of Fundraising Professionals, AFP.

For a list of all the organizations that I have been involved with, please see my Linkedin.

Below are a select few images of my experiences. 

 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did in relishing my time with each organization.
