14+ FOUNDATION ANNUAL COCKTAIL BENEFIT

Rarely do I reach out and ask clients to participate in philanthropic endeavors. No doubt we all receive numerous solicitations each year and we all have our own priorities about which causes to support.

Having said that, I would like to bring to the 14+ Foundation to your attention. This foundation was established to develop, build and operate schools and orphanages in rural African communities. It was co-founded by someone who I know personally and have much admiration and respect for - Joe Mizzi. Knowing Joe and participating in many past events, I know first-hand the passion and care that has gone into this cause.

I am proud to support the good work of the foundation and I ask that you read about it and support it along with me. Here is a link to the website (14+ Foundation) and an exciting up-coming event on October 6. I hope you will be able to join me there.
