Updates from the Leadership Charlotte Class of 2023:  

Hurricane Ian has taken a drastic toll on many members of our community. We believe it is vital to support the seniors through several of our area nonprofits.  The funds raised will benefit three nonprofits, Meals on Wheels, Drug Free Charlotte County & Douglas T. Jacobson Veterans.
