We love doing things like this for the community
Boca Raton, FL (Vocus) May 18, 2010
Public schools across the nation are cutting programs and curriculum, but with the support of company donors, one elementary school in Boca Raton, Florida is building programs through its Wildcats on Safari walkathon. Seeing an opportunity to help students in need, Client First Settlement Funding volunteered to sponsor two students in the walkathon for the elementary school.
Client First Settlement Funding helps owners of structured settlements and self-owned annuities by providing alternative financial options. Hannah and Charlotte Ostrov’s father is a legal counsel for the company.
The Wildcats on Safari walkathon is an annual fundraiser that pays for an entire year’s worth of academic activities. It raises money for fine arts programs, equips the science lab and fills other needs for classrooms, teachers and playgrounds. Sponsoring individual students in the walkathon directly aids the school, which raised a total of $22,000 with the event.
“We love doing things like this for the community,” said Maria Fregosi, chief operations officer of Client First Settlement Funding. “It only makes it better that we have a personal connection to the school. When that happens, you feel like your money is directly helping people you are connected with.”
For the structured settlement annuity company, this is another opportunity to become involved with the community.
“We look for opportunities like this and welcome the chance to help out,” said Burt Kroner, CEO of Client First Settlement Funding. “We try to be a well-rounded company, and we like to reward those who we feel have a positive effect on our society.”
Students Hannah and Charlotte each received the grand prize for their fundraising efforts and won a day trip to the Lion Country Safari in Wellington, Florida.
