On August 9, 2018, over 100 guests attended Branches’ 2nd Annual Back to School Bash and mixed, mingled and enjoyed drinks and delicious appetizers on the rooftop of the Lennar Foundation Medical Center in Coral Gables. A special thank you to TeamFootWorks, Alan Goldfarb P.A., Bilzin Sumberg and Missy & Jim Morgan for their generous support of this event and of course our incredible restaurant partners for bringing such yummy treats for our guests: California Pizza Kitchen, Devon Seafood + Steak Kendall, Misha’s Cupcakes, Pisco y Nazca, RX Coffee, Shula’s Grill, Season’s 52 and Titanic Brewery. Thank you as well to United Healthcare for donating waters and Plaza Construction for bringing out a big team. A special thanks to our venue sponsor as well, the University of Miami Health System.

In addition, Branches announced its 2018 Herbert C. Parlato Volunteer Award that evening, honoring Mrs. Patti Morgan who has volunteered with Branches Florida City for several years Patti has been instrumental to Branches programs, from putting together the Grow & Climb program Operating Manual, to managing the Climb thru College Scholarship program and taking students on college tours. Thank you Patti for all you have done and do for Branches and the families we serve!

We are also so grateful for the wonderful support of our partners who are helping us make sure all our kids go back to school with the proper supplies and tools they need: Alma Advertising, Carnival Cruise Lines and the National Christian Foundation.
