CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Wednesday 20th of November at 11:30am, charities from across the Tampa Bay area will meet at the Historic Fort Harrison Crystal Ballroom for the last Tampa Bay Charity Coalition Luncheon of 2019. The event will feature a fall-themed menu, networking and an educational segment.  The event is open to staff, board members and volunteers of Tampa Bay non-profits. There is no cost to attend.

“When thinking about fall the first thing that tends to come to my mind is cozy sweaters, warm drinks and thankfulness.” said Clemence Chevrot, Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology FSO. “Non-profits start thinking about how they will wrap up their year with the donations and volunteer hours they need to get through the busy holiday season and the end of the year!”

The Tampa Bay Charity Coalition fosters collaboration, and creating a better community by working with one another. The Coalition now includes over 300 non-profit organizations.

The luncheon’s educational segment will cover best practices for charities as they approach the Holiday season and the end of the year. The segment will also cover how non-profits can best organize their time and motivate their supporters to work together on reaching the end-of-the year goals.

“Per research, nearly one third of annual giving occurs in December,” said Chevrot. “Whether they feed the hungry, tutor kids or provide shelter for those in need, these charities should be supported to reach as many people as they can.”

“I have been attending the networking luncheons for three years and love them.” said Sonia Goncalves, Treasurer for Global Community Tennis. “There is such a variety of groups to make new contacts with at each meetings. The best is that all of the attendees are running a charity or volunteering and are all about helping the community.”

As Scientology’s founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote: “What is important is how much service you can give the world and how much you can get done and how much better you can make things. These are important things. These are all that are important.”
