FLORIDA’S PREMIERE YOUTH ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION OFFERS A UNIQUE WAY FOR TAMPA BAY AREA PATRONS TO SIP, SUPPORT OR SAY “THANK YOU” WITH A SPECIAL GIFT THAT SUPPORTS THEIR CRITICAL WORK

Tampa, Fla. – Florida’s Children First (FCF), an award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the rights of at-risk children and youth in the foster care system, is hosting the CHILL Virtual Wine Tasting fundraiser on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 6 to 7 p.m. As part of its annual Greater Tampa Bay area fundraiser, patrons will enjoy a safe, socially distanced and fun way to “escape” from their local surroundings for a bit, while affording FCF the opportunity to raise funds and educate supporters on their mission of helping kids in and aging out of foster care.

“Innovation and impact have been a hallmark of our organization this past year and we cannot wait to share our progress with supporters and the community,” said Robin Rosenberg, FCF Deputy Director. “We’d rather be in person, but we’re bringing that same innovation to this event. By partnering with a team of talented Napa wine experts, participants will enjoy and learn about fine wines while also learning more about the important work we do, as we celebrate the season together virtually.”

Grayson Kamm, a former local news reporter and current Chief Communications Officer at the State Attorney’s Office, will serve as the evening’s Emcee. “I have hosted FCF’s annual fundraiser events for years and seen first-hand the tremendous impact the organization has had on the lives of thousands of our most vulnerable children. I am thrilled that we will be able to toast to their achievements once again.”

During this unique fundraising event, participants will “escape to Napa” as renowned master wine expert Gillian Ballance explains the featured wines, what makes them special, how to best complement each one, and much more. Participants can choose from a variety of premium wines from Napa’s celebrated wine region, which will be shipped directly to their homes. For those who want to support but not savor, the wine packages can also be gifted and shipped to others or sent as year-end corporate or holiday gifts. “A package of wine directly from Napa that also supports a nonprofit is a truly unique gift,” adds Rosenberg.

“Everyone, particularly those in or aging out of the foster care system, have endured some very trying months. But all of us, especially the youth in foster care we serve, have shown tremendous resilience,” said FCF Board President and founder Howard Talenfeld, who serves as Co-Business Unit Leader of the Justice for Kids Division of Kelley Kronenberg. “This event provides an outlet to gather together, “CHILL” out, and celebrate amazing accomplishments and people with the Greater Tampa Bay community.”

One of the featured guests will be former foster youth Kenisha Anthony who will share how FCF’s youth advocacy and empowerment organization, Florida Youth SHINE, helped her transition from being an abandoned child of drug-addicted parents to an accomplished young woman and newly published author of “LABELED: Ward of the State.”

CHILL is generously underwritten by sponsors that include FCF Statewide Presenting Sponsor Kelley Kronenberg; and Statewide Sponsors: The Florida Bar Foundation, The Guardian Trust, The Paul Palank Memorial Foundation, and The Shane McGee Foundation.

“As we end a challenging year and begin the holiday season, what better way to celebrate than a virtual trip to Napa that also supports our society’s most vulnerable kids,” notes Heath Eskalyo, Principal Partner/Chief Financial Officer of Kelley Kronenberg. “At a time when we are all facing unprecedented challenges, youth in state care need our support now more than ever. We hope you will join us in supporting FCF on December 3.”

South Florida Medicaid Meals Home Delivery – Independent Living Systems

Published

on

By

Founded in 2001, Independent Living Systems (ILS) was formed to assist health plans and other organizations in the delivery of community based services as an alternative to costly institutional based care.

Miami home delivered Medicaid meals 

In developing and implementing one of the country’s first long-term care diversion program in the country, we learned that nearly 70% of people residing in nursing homes would not need to be there if they had access to community based resources to support them. With an average cost of a year-long stay in a nursing home at $60,000, ILS developed the Managed Long-Term Services and Supports Program to reduce those costs to an average of $25,000. Improving costs and quality, combined with a patient’s preference to live at home has been the driving force behind the development of our future services.

LS is one of the nation’s largest nutritional providers delivering high-quality dietician-designed meals to the elderly, special needs, and at-risk populations. Members receive dietary menus that are tailored to the health care needs of the recipient.

ILS meals help individuals achieve their nutrition goals at critical times to help them regain and maintain their health. The results include improved member health outcomes, lower hospital readmission rates, a well-maintained nutritional health status, and increased member satisfaction.

Florida home insurance policy owners should know that no two insurance carriers’ policies are alike. Each home insurance policy is written by a team of insurance company legal experts to meet the financial and legal risk profile that the company wishes to accept for the premium paid. The State of Florida does regulate the insurance industry and many terms of coverage are protected by law but there can be many areas of exclusion and payout limitations that are specific to each contract. When a claim is disputed, it’s easy for a consumer to feel overwhelmed their friendly neighborly insurance agent isn’t in the process it’s done by the claims department which has an entirely different agenda than the sales agent.

Top Rated – Miami Home Insurance Law Firm 

In the event that your home is damaged or destroyed by a hurricane or severe storm, fire, water or mold damage, or other events, don’t be surprised if the insurance company’s first reaction is to respond in one of the following ways:

  • Claim that your damage is due to some pre-existing condition
  • Assert that your claim is not covered under the terms of your policy
  • Offer you a low settlement amount that does not cover your losses
  • Allege that your claim is fraudulent, or that you did not keep up with your premium payments
  • Fail to investigate or respond to your claim
  • Cancel your policy based on recently-discovered “errors” in your application

We are a client-focused law firm that fights aggressively on behalf of residential and commercial policyholders, contractors, restoration and mitigation companies, to produce maximum recovery results from insurance companies through our unique expertise, deep understanding of insurance law, cutting edge technology and proactive approach to litigation.
