NCCI raises over $230,000 for annual United Way Giving Campaign

The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) recently wrapped up its annual United Way Giving campaign, raising over $230,000 and collecting over 4,000 school supplies for the nonprofit’s Palm Beach County chapter.

This year’s campaign theme, “Our Children … Our Future,” was chosen to support Palm Beach County’s most vulnerable citizens – children in need. NCCI worked with United Way of Palm Beach County to ensure Palm Beach County’s kids’ success by focusing on education, food, and shelter.

Director of Tax & Billing Corey Mitleider helmed this year’s campaign as NCCI’s United Way Chairman and could not be more pleased with the results.

“No child should ever have to wonder where their next meal will come from or how they will get school supplies for the year,” Mitleider said. “It fills our team with pride to know that the money raised and supplies donated during the ‘Our Children … Our Future’ campaign will make a positive impact on the lives of Palm Beach County’s children in need.”

NCCI’s United Way Giving campaign is part of the company’s charitable initiative, NCCI Cares. Employees receive 40 paid hours annually to volunteer for causes of their choice, plus eight additional hours to participate in company-wide charitable events.

“NCCI’s philanthropic mission allows everyone at our company to be a leader and to give back to the community which we serve,” Chief Human Resources Officer Bradley Kitchens said. “We are so proud of our employees for donating their time and resources to help the most vulnerable citizens in our county.”

Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center to open first Fla. location in Boca

Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is planning to open its first location in the state in Boca Raton.

Known by many celebrities and touted as “Hollywood’s secret weapon in the fight against aging,” the Los Angeles-based franchise has plans to open its Boca location this month at 7001 N. Federal Hwy #270.

“Over the last 12 years, advances by medical science related to managing the aging process have been nothing short of phenomenal,” said BHRC co-founder Devin Haman. “Standing on the shoulders of remarkable physicians, we created a suite of non-surgical, minimally invasive services that improve our client’s health and appearance. These services were at one time something that was only available to Hollywood celebrities. We look forward to bringing our winning formula to South Florida.”

There are plans to open as many as six South Fla. locations over the next several years.

Known for its advanced techniques and pioneering treatments, BHRC offers affordable, transformational and non-invasive services such as laser treatments, facial treatments, hormone replacement, weight loss, and injectables. Other innovative treatments include Coolsculpting, body contouring, hair restoration, and vaginal rejuvenation.

Since opening its original Los Angeles wellness center in 2005, BHRC has opened additional branches across Arizona, Nevada, and Texas. Today, there are 11 locations servicing clients in four states, with nearly a dozen more in various stages of development.

The estimated initial investment to open a BHRC franchise ranges from $540,000 to $881,000, which includes a franchise fee of $50,000.

TooJay’s Donates $10,000 to feeding South Florida

Thanks to TooJay’s second annual “Too+You” campaign in September, the West Palm Beach-based restaurant company donated $10,000 to Feeding South Florida, the Feeding America food bank serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties.

“With TooJay’s headquarters in South Florida’s service area, we’re incredibly grateful for this partnership. Thanks to their support, TooJay’s donation will provide more than 60,000 meals to South Florida families,” said Paco Vélez, President and CEO of Feeding South Florida.

This donation is a portion of $25,000 that TooJay’s recently donated to Feeding Florida, a statewide network of Feeding America food banks providing a healthy, adequate and consistent food supply to those in need. In September, $1 of every cake slice sold was donated to Feeding Florida. Guests also made donations by rounding up their checks throughout the month.

“We are pleased to partner with and support Feeding Florida as a part of our commitment to give back to the local communities where we do business,” said Max Piet, President and CEO of TooJay’s. “Thanks to the efforts of our team members and guests, we surpassed our fundraising goal for this amazing cause.”

TooJay’s team members across its 28 locations also got involved by collecting enough canned food to provide an additional 2,500 meals.
