Blues & BBQ Shredding Event
SHREDDING DOCUMENTS AND HUNGER!
Saturday, November 12, 2016, was the perfect day for Grace Advisory Group’s annual shredding event. This year, we expanded the format and invited the neighborhood surrounding our Fort Myers headquarters to a BBQ and food drive. A certified, high-security mobile shredder was on site to securely destroy hundreds of loads of unwanted confidential documents.
Robert E. Grace, JD, CLU, ChFC, RFC, Founder and President of Grace, said “We are committed to assuring the total confidentiality of our clients’ personal information. Assuring the same security at home can be a real challenge. Each year, this free service is highly appreciated by our clients and friends.”
More than 200 people enjoyed live music by local musician Bill Metts and tasty burgers, which our advisors skillfully grilled and prepared with all the fixings. The whole staff and their families were engaged; helping with the transport of papers, sorting and stacking food donations, and serving drinks and BBQ.
As another gift to the community, we encouraged attendees to bring dry and canned goods for the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Our food drive resulted in 1,025 pounds of food and $727 in cash donations for our neighbors in need. The Harry Chapin Food Bank provides 150 partner agencies in the five-county area with the food they need to serve those who turn to them for help.
We’re thrilled that we effectively doubled our donations from our 2015 event and look forward to continue this trend with the help of our clients and the community at our next Shredding Event!
