ANB was a Bronze level table sponsor at the Seafarers’ House 17thAnnual South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon to honor Denise Johnston, Betty Ann Rogacki, and Lynn Shatas for their professional and personal success serving as models and mentors in South Florida business circles and the community. The luncheon and awards ceremony was held aboard the MS Noordam cruise ship in harbor at Holland America’s dock in Port Everglades on 11/16/12. Seafarers’ House is the world’s busiest maritime outreach program, welcoming thousands of crew members who travel through the Port on cargo and cruise ships each year and providing them a place to relax, connect with their families in their home countries and seek emergency assistance if needed.
The ANB team supported the Taylor’s Closet Annual Benefit held Saturday November 10th at their Pompano Beach boutique. In attendance from ANB was Amy Engelberg, EVP and Chief Lending Officer, Carolyn Ivanov, and Michelle Vehemente. Taylor’s Closet was started 7 years ago by then 14-year-old Lindsay Giambattista, who now co-runs it with her mom, Linda Giambattista. Their goal is to reach the 32,000 at-risk girls in South Fkorida who have been abused, abandoned, and hurt by providing a place where they are loved, taught and healed. That process of building relationship starts by bringing them to the boutique to shop. Learn more about Taylor’s Closet at http://taylorscloset.org.
Our Thanksgiving food drive benefiting Sheridan House was a great success.
