Community Activities

altI had a lot of fun on 10/10/07 as I shot a special Public Service Announcement (PSA) for one of my favorite organizations, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County.

Under the leadership of Mack Reid, the Boys and Girls Clubs are doing some wonderful things right here in my community. 

The youngsters who attend the Boys and Girls Clubs have the wonderful opportunity to engage in a wide variety of after-school activities led by some of the most dedicated and talented people serving kids.

The PSA was for their upcoming ”Kids Night Out” Celebrating Hometown Heroes event on Thursday, November 8th at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota.  I am honored to be one of the hometown heroes that will share in this special night.  Other hometown heroes include some of my friends and other leaders in the community that I admire greatly such as: Graci McGillicuddy, Teri Hansen, Diane McFarlin, Betty Schoenbaum, Myra Monfort and Dr. Richard Vinton.  What an incredible group of giving individuals and I am privileged to be a part of this special evening. 

altMaking the night even more memorable will be the two celebrities who will join in the festivities, Hall of Famer Johnny Bench and actor, Danny Glover.  The event is sure to be a huge success and in the end it will be the kids served at the Boys and Girls Club who will win.


I would like to also recognize Veronica Miller and Scott Carpenter of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County who have worked tirelessly to make this event a success.  They have worked on every detail and they helped me tremendously the day of our shoot.  I can’t wait for the event – it will be “Awesome, Baby!”.
