Kimal Lumber (Sarasota – Fruitville Road) 1st Anniversary Celebration

(Part two of our Kimal Lumber blog)

Jeffrey and I were thrilled to help Kimal Lumber celebrate the 1st Anniversary of their Fruitville Road store opening. We were touched by the sincerity and generosity of Kimal owner Al Bavry. He presented the All Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House with a donation of $38,000! Ronald McDonald was even on hand to accept the check (And, yes, Jeffrey got his photo taken with him). Ronald McDonald House Charities provide warmth, housing and assistance to families with sick children. Thank you, Al, for your generous support of such a worthy cause!
