But the cornerstone of the event was a table that became even more packed with presents as the evening celebration wore on. President Wendy Kleefisch of Brevard Executive Limousine is a longtime supporter of the local charity Toys for Kids, and she once again embraced the CFLA holiday event as an opportunity to benefit the region’s children in need with a fundraising raffle and toy drive.
“I’m very thankful that the CFLA can continue to support Toys for Kids,” Kleefisch said. “Philanthropy and this charity are so important to me, and I’m proud that we raised $500 during our holiday party—and that it’s all for putting smiles on children’s faces.”
Kleefisch was determined to make sure the evening’s party-goers left with some presents of their own, too: Everything from gift cards to show passes, from home goods to bottles of wine, and from the poinsettia centerpieces to an artificial—and fully decorated—tree were raffled off as the evening progressed. Among the winners was Louis Hawkins of Florida Loyalty Transportation, who won a pass to the 2019 Chauffeur Driven Executive Retreat in Austin May 5-8.
Between sending another round of gifts home with the evening’s guests, the party offered plenty of opportunities to enjoy the warmth of industry peers, friends, and supporters, as a buffet dinner, conversations, and photo-booth props encouraged everyone to make new friends and catch up with longtime associates. Kleefisch also made sure to thank the evening’s sponsors and attendees alike, adding to the warmth and gratitude of a night that ultimately aimed to bring smiles to many local children’s faces.
The next CFLA event will be its January 8 meeting.
