MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
Dr. and Mrs. Prysi attended “Make A Wish; An Evening in Paris.” The event raised $200,000, enough to grant the heartfelt wishes of 40 local children in our community.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Last year, we granted the heartfelt wishes of 72 local children in the counties that we serve, which are Lee Collier, Hendry and Glades. We are not publicly funded, and rely strictly on donations from events, individuals, corporations, grants and bequests.
Women in Naples Giving Support (WINGS) is an organization founded in Naples to provide necessities for middle school students. WINGS prepares young girls and boys to learn by providing the tools to maximize their educational experience. Uniforms, underwear, socks, sweatshirts, backpacks with school supplies and toiletries are made available to the students of Manatee and Golden Gate Middle Schools. By doing so, the women of WINGS are making a difference in the lives of these students. Over 90% of these girls and boys are from families that are at or below the poverty level.
The women of WINGS also mentor a group of 25 girls at Manatee on select Friday afternoons. Learning sessions are presented that range from setting goals, managing money, discovering career opportunities, and health and fitness classes. Life lessons are also provided, such as how they should be treated as young ladies, including manners and etiquette standards for themselves and others. Girls are selected for the WINGS program by teachers and counselors at the school.
WINGS funds a grant for Champions for Learning (the Education Foundation of Collier County), which is a 501c3. They also fund Take Stock scholarships through Champions for Learning.
