Orlando, Fla. — The Central Florida Livery Association (CFLA) took to Carrabba’s Italian Grill to celebrate the holiday season among industry friends December 3 with dinner, toy donations benefiting Toys for Kids, prizes, and a chance to unwind among industry friends.
Toys for Kids is a favorite charity of CFLA President Wendy Kleefisch of Brevard Executive Limousine and a longtime beneficiary of the association. A cornerstone of the CFLA holiday event is always a table that becomes even more packed with presents throughout the night that underscores members’ desire to help local children in need.
Kleefisch made sure the evening’s party-goers left with some presents of their own, too: For every toy donation a member made, they earned a chance to win one of the evening’s raffle prizes. But everyone was a winner at a party that offered plenty of opportunities to enjoy the warmth of industry peers, friends, and supporters, as dinner, conversations, and photo ops of everyone decked out in their festive attire encouraged members and supporters alike to make new friends and catch up with longtime associates.
There were plenty of thanks to go around, too, as Kleefisch expressed her gratitude to the CFLA’s vendors, operators, and board members, adding some extra warmth to an event that will pay it forward by ensuring that some of the region’s neediest children will have one more reason to smile this holiday season.
