Attorney David L Goldman Co-Hosted the ‘Share The Light’ Charity Luncheon At Michael’s On East In Sarasota
SARASOTA FL - Attorney David L. Goldman, a partner of the law firm of Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh (also known as “Justice Pays”), co-hosted the ‘Share the Light’ charity luncheon at Michael’s on East on Thursday, October 27, 2022 which was sponsored by the law firm. The event celebrated the 27th Anniversary of local not-for-profit organization Second Chance Last Opportunity. Mr. Goldman serves as board chairman of Second Chance and co-hosted the event with the group’s founder and CEO, Dr. April Glasco.
The event featured moving testimonials from those whose lives have been turned around as a result of their involvement with this local charitable organization. Selina Frazier, a single mother of three children, found herself homeless and without hope until she reached out to Dr. Glasco and Second Chance for help. With the organization’s assistance she found housing and employment.
Ms. Frazier’s children actively participate in the programs and activities that the group provides. Both she and her children were featured in the music video “I am what I eat” which promotes healthy eating.
Attorey David Goldman noted that Second Chance has also become an Emergency Crisis Center administering food distributions that have reached over 80,000 individuals in the community. These distributions take place at the Second Chances main office on MLK Jr. Way in Sarasota, and continue to provide food, toiletries, and baby supplies to those in need twice a week.
Second Chance now has three separate office locations. In addition to the MLK Jr. Way main office, the organization has opened a women’s center which focuses on the needs of women, children, and families. A third location provides professional counseling service with two licensed mental health counselors, April Glasco MHC and Paul White, LMHC.
April Glasco also spoke of the organization’s current fundraising campaign to expand the main office so as to add a second floor and to have all screened in areas of the building be air conditioned.
