I hope you are enjoying the nice warm long nights and the beautiful pool weather during the day. Speaking of pools, I was out lounging the other day, and as Deliver the Dream's official security officer, I wanted to remind you all to play it safe in the pool this summer. Also, don't forget your sunscreen. Reapply as much as possible!

Usually things slow down here at Deliver the Dream in the summer but not this year. We're working hard to organize tons of fun events this summer and fall.

Our bowling tournament is going to be super fun with tons of prizes and a cool super hero costume contest. I love the fishing tournament because I get to enjoy delicious fresh fish! Our gala this year is going to be the best one yet! I'll let you know more details soon. And I'm excited for our inaugural golf tournament - I can't wait to take selfies with the celebrities golfing with us!

Stay safe this month and I'll see you soon!

Fred

We are excited to announce that we have not one intern this summer but two! Katherine attends Georgia Southern University and is interning with Deliver the Dream and Gilda’s Club South Florida where she can positively support and impact children and families experiencing crisis or an illness. She is working on her Bachelors of Science in Child and Family Development with Emphasis in Child Life and a Minor in Psychology. Katherine is the perfect fit to work hands-on with our families.

Samantha attends Florida State University and is interning with Deliver the Dream as a way to fulfill an editing internship but also share her passion of non-profits. She is double majoring in Marking and Editing, Writing, and Media and minoring in Hospitality. She is just what we need to help us with all of our writing needs and events. We are so happy to have this dynamic duo!


We hosted our 2nd annual Red Hot and In Style Event for the LGBT community on May 8. It was a great success raising nearly $20,000 to help Deliver the Dream families. The event was loved by all who attended; guests had fun bidding on eligible bachelor and bachelorettes, perusing silent auction items, and of course being entertained by the hosts of the night Malcolm Neitzey and Joe Posa, in the persona of Joan Rivers.
