Excel Construction Brightens the Day for L.A. Lee YMCA/Mizell Community Center After-School Program Students

The team dedicated their time and skills to assist children in constructing gingerbread houses.

Under the supervision of a team of experts from Excel Construction of Florida, a group of school children participated in an after-school program at the L.A Lee YMCA/Mizell Community Center where they constructed gingerbread buildings from scratch. The children eagerly rolled up their shirt sleeves and worked diligently on their creations, honing their skills and having fun.

The Excel Construction of Florida team volunteered their time and expertise to help children build gingerbread houses. They guided the kids through the process and encouraged them to work in teams to create their masterpieces. Amidst the colorful sprinkles, icing, festive hats, and tasty gingerbread men, the group enjoyed interacting and bonding with each other while building their gingerbread house creations. There were plenty of smiles as the children showed off their impressive creations.

“We love kids, and we love what we do so this was really special for us,” Eric Wolf says, president of Excel Construction of Florida. “The kids at the YMCA were quick learners and created some impressive buildings, which is pretty remarkable given their age. Who knows, one of them may someday think about working in our industry. We hope this experience was as memorable for them as it was for us.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
