The Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce June 19th Business Breakfast focused on area non-profit organizations and the collaboration among agencies to benefit all the members of our community.
Guest speaker Denyve Boyle, Director of Philanthropy at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, provided insight into the guidance and financial expertise that the Community Foundation can provide to smaller not-for-profits. Seton Hengesbach, Nature Coast Council Chairman, outlined the asset management capabilities of the foundation and how it honors the wishes of large benefactors.
Following the formal presentation, the Chamber recognized six local non-profits including Feeding Pasco’s Elderly, Restored Hope, Sunrise of Pasco, Love One Another, The Thomas Promise and Make a Difference. All received a certificate of appreciation and a check from the Chamber.
Additional recognition went to Penny Morrill, with Restored Hope, who received the Chamber’s 2017/18 “Ambassador of the Year” award for her consistent support of Chamber events and activities.
