Gathering that evening, organization members will have the opportunity to connect with each other while enjoying a complimentary dinner from the Fort Harrison’s award winning chefs.

The MC for the event will be Dylan Pires, the Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology in Clearwater.

At every Charity Coalition, there is a featured charity and educational program. At this banquet, the guests will learn about the featured charity from another perspective; from someone whose life was directly affected by the local charity.

The educational speaker will speak about fundraising, a topic every non-profit needs to be well trained in so they can grow and flourish.

“It is very important for us to see the community doing well,” said Mr. Pires, “We support the local charities because we know that they are making a difference for a better community. That’s why we open our facilities for charities and non-profit organizations to hold their own events and fundraisers.”
