SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 4, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – Lawyer David L Goldman was a guest speaker at the ‘Night Of Hope’ fundraising event, hosted by the charity Second Chance Last Opportunity in Sarasota, ON. Florida.
On the evening of Thursday, October 28, 2021, Second Chance Last Opportunity hosted a “Night of Hope” event to celebrate its 26th anniversary as a successful local 501 (c) (3) charity. The event took place at Michael’s On East restaurant and raised over $ 50,000.
A 25th anniversary event was originally planned the previous year but was canceled due to covid. During the pandemic, Second Chance turned into an emergency crisis center and distributed food and other items such as toiletries and diapers several days a week.
Second Chance was founded by the organization’s CEO, Dr. April Glasco, and was originally a small storefront company on MLK Jr. Blvd in Sarasota. Board Chairman, Attorney David L. Goldman, addressed the crowd of over 150 attendees.
Goldman noted that the organization has remained open throughout the pandemic and has served more than 80,000 different people. A network of volunteers and suppliers has been created to obtain and distribute food and other supplies and remains intact to provide services to those in need.
Goldman explained that despite the organization’s new and expanded role, Second Chance continues to provide all of the other services it was known for, such as its life skills management courses and job training to push clients through l roaming to a permanent job.
In recent years, Second Chance has also focused on the issues faced by young women, offering classes and workshops to help young women break the chains of addiction and bad influences. In addition, Second Chance offers children’s programs such as its “Out of the Box” programs, as well as community festivals, art classes and more.
