WILLIAMS PARKER SHAREHOLDER INTRODUCES KEYNOTE
SPEAKER AT 11TH ANNUAL GRACE ROSEN MAGILL LECTURE
Rose-Anne Frano recently delivered introductory remarks
for the JFCS’s annual event
SARASOTA, Fla., – Williams Parker’s (www.williamsparker.com) Rose-Anne Frano recently had the honor of introducing the keynote speaker at the Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) 11th Annual Grace Rosen Magill Lecture.
At this outreach event, JFCS recognized Shaun Benderson with the Sidney J. Berkowitz Building Community Award and Ernie Kretzmer with the Rabbi Sanford E. & Leah Saperstein Hope & Healing Award. The keynote address was delivered by Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman, a retired U.S. Marine and well-regarded author and public speaker.
“Lt. Col. Kopelman’s story of leadership and bravery spoke to the dedication of our service men and women and how much they sacrifice for our freedom,” commented Frano. “His message was encouraging but also offered up a challenge, reinforcing how important it is to support community organizations, like the JFCS, that embrace our troops as they transition back into society after active service.”
“We are proud to support JFCS; they provide a vital safety net for our community serving anyone who turns to them for help,” noted Ric Gregoria, president of Williams Parker. “We share their vision for a strong community and are honored to help them achieve their mission.”
