Hi all! Well, this month I would like to use my soapbox to entice you with the big event that is right around the corner at Deliver the Dream! That's right "our 14th annual Denim & Diamonds Gala is on November 11th at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Club and I've already picked out my duds for the evening.

Yeah, it's the one time of year I truly get decked out to the nines, you know, between you and me I even partake in a little splash of aftershave! It's called Arfmani strong enough for a man but made for a Min Pin.

So, as always our guests can expect the unexpected this year!

So, I'm telling you now you definitely don't want to miss this one. Now, I have to go polish my dancing shoes! Yeah, it's early but remember I've got four of those suckers to shine!

See you at the event!

One of Deliver the Dream's greatest assets is its board of directors. Each month a team of dedicated professionals meets to support Deliver the Dream's mission, purposes, goals, policies, and programs while offering their expertise and guidance. Since the first of the year we have added four new board members who bring a whole new perspective and new skill set to the table. DTD is proud to welcome:

Jeffrey Balk, AllayPay
Ryan Campbell, Colada Cuban Coffee House
Erick Eldridge, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Arthur Levine, Sensus Healthcare, Inc.

And of course, to our faithful board of directors who are just as dedicated to the cause as we are... a big shout out goes to:

Christopher Ciano, Chairman of DTD board, Aetna
Diane Gencarelli, Bluegreen Vacations
Joshua Jordan, City National Bank
Michael Lessne, Broad and Cassel, P.A.
Scott Lockwood, Conifer Health Solutions
Michael Mitchell, PNC Bank
Kelly Phillips, Treasurer of DTD, Grant Thornton
David Scileppi, Gunster Law Firm
Vito Scutero, Tek Partners
Justin Stone, Crowe Horwath, LLP

We could not begin to do the work we do without the support of these individuals!

When your purpose is to share happiness you know it is a great company! Bluegreen Vacations is just that, a great company that not only offers busy families a chance to slow down, relax and share time together but is also very philanthropic in nature. For the last 8 years, Deliver the Dream has been the recipient of such generosity and kindness. What started as a regular sponsorship for the annual Denim and Diamonds gala turned into support for the Friends of Deliver the Dream, third party events, Young Professionals group and auction items... yes spectacular stays at one of their premier properties!

And if that was not enough, Bluegreen Vacations stepped up and offered their Orlando property as a retreat location years ago. This year, September 22-24, Bluegreen Vacations will be hosting our retreat for families who have a child with Down syndrome. Volunteers from Bluegreen will be family pals and the entire retreat is sponsored by Bluegreen. We are truly grateful for this amazing partnership and thank Diane Gencarelli, Vice President of Operations at Bluegreen and a member of the DTD board of directors. Diane has spearheaded several initiatives on behalf of DTD and is a huge supporter of our mission.

Founded in 1966, Bluegreen Vacations manages and markets a flexible, points-based, deeded vacation ownership program that connects over 200,000 owners with over 60 Bluegreen resorts in more than 40 popular destinations across the continental U.S. and the Caribbean.

Bluegreen Corporation, a leader in the vacation ownership industry and wholly owned subsidiary of BBX Capital Corporation, offers a portfolio of comprehensive, turnkey,
fee-based service resort management, financial services, and sales and marketing services on behalf of third parties.
