CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On September 14th, the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition will celebrate five years of service of its 250 member charities. The Church of Scientology FSO will host the event at the historic Fort Harrison.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Police Athletic League Drum Line and Groupo Folklorico Mahetzi will open the event.
“We like coming to the Fort Harrison," said the founder of Groupo Folklorico Mahetzi, Mere Serrano. “It is good for the youth to see and meet the other charity members. Everybody in the coalition is sharing their skills to help others. It gives me hope for their future to see what we can do together.”
The Coalition will present two sets of awards. The Smile Maker Award is for youth who make a difference. Qualifying adult volunteers are eligible for bronze, silver, gold or diamond Making the Difference Award.
Clemence Chevrot, the event organizer noted that Tampa Bay non-profits are game changers. For example, she said, “The crime rate for the Tampa Bay area has been lowering over the past few years. Four of Safewise’s list of the 50 safest cities in Florida, are in Tampa Bay. One is in the top 10. That’s ‘making a difference’.”
If you would like to nominate a youth or an adult for the awards, please contact Clemence Chevrot at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP online at www.eventbrite.com/e/charity-coalition-5th-anniversary-celebration-tickets-69931955361.
