Plantation, FL (PRWEB) September 29, 2008
The Altman Companies recently marked the official grand opening of Grove East, a luxury rental community in Plantation, with a donation of more than 200 teddy bears to the Plantation Police Department Community Outreach Center.
Plantation Police Officer Bob Wilkins and Lynn Braden, community relations director of the Plantation Police Department Community Outreach Center, accepted the teddy bears donated by The Altman Companies and guests at the grand opening. The teddy bears will be kept in police cars to give to children during times of crisis.
Participating in the ceremonial ribbon cutting as part of the grand opening celebration were The Altman Companies President and CEO Joel Altman and his wife Beverly; Jeff Roberts, President of Altman Development; Manny Martinez, vice president of Altman Development; Plantation Mayor Rae Carole Armstrong and City Commissioners Diane Veltri Bendekovic, Jerry Fadgen, Dr. Robert Levy, Rico Petrocelli and Sharon Moody Uria.
Addressing guests at the grand opening, Joel Altman recognized the city's Community Redevelopment, which has initiated a series of enhancements along the State Road 7/US 441 Corridor. "We support the redevelopment efforts of one of South Florida's greatest cities," said Altman. "It has been a privilege to build this beautiful new community at the gateway to the city and it's been a pleasure working with the mayor, commissioners and city staff."
Grove East has been hailed for its urban feel. The mixed use design is known for helping cities and neighborhoods revive business districts by strengthening the commercial core, generating more customers for merchants and providing convenient shopping for new residents.
"Along with the excitement of introducing Grove East to the community, we had the opportunity to support one of the initiatives of the Plantation Police Department with our teddy bear collection," added Martinez. "We are always looking for opportunities to positively impact the communities where we live and do business."
