The annual Limousine Association of New Jersey fundraiser has long served as a role model for industry togetherness.
KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Wendy Kleefisch, president of the Central Florida Livery Association (CFLA) and Brevard Executive Transportation, was a little apprehensive at first when putting on the CFLA's first annual Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament for charity.
She had no idea 41 operators would show up from all over the country to support the cause that ended up raising over $2,500 for two different charities: One Heart for Women & Children and Hope & Help. The tournament was held April 26 at Formosa Gardens.
"It was a huge success unlike anything I could have imagined," Kleefish said. "I was scared because I didn’t want to fail, but the amount of support we recieved from so many people was astounding and helped make the event possible."
The money raised will be used to purchase high-protein, nonperishable canned food items which will fill a Grech limo bus during the association's Cans for a Cause event which officially begins May 8.
The canned goods will be held at GNS Transportation Group in Orlando until they are ready to be delivered.
Tournament winners included Fernando Carlison Jr. of Mundi Limousine in first place, Lenin Fraga of American Transportation and Limo Service in second, and Jeremy Jenkins of His and Hers Limousines in third.
