FLITE Center Palm Beach Hosts Collective Impact Awards

The nonprofit organization serves as a hub for support services aimed at helping foster care youth become successful adults within a safe and nurturing environment. 

The inaugural FLITE Center Gunther Motor Company Collective Impact Awards will provide an ideal platform to acknowledge the collaborators, supporters and organizations contributing to advancing FLITE Center’s mission and collective impact in Palm Beach County. The nonprofit organization invites the community to attend the inaugural event, presented by South Florida Business & Wealth. It will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at The Studio located at The Ben Autograph Collection Hotel in West Palm Beach, 251 N Narcissus Ave. The ceremony will acknowledge the awardee’s significant contributions to the Palm Beach operations and their role in promoting collective growth. Attendees can expect to participate in a champagne toast, enjoy drink selections and hors d’oeuvres, and take advantage of special event rates and valet parking.

Since January 2021, FLITE Center has extended its services from Broward to Palm Beach County, providing supportive services to the youth and partnering with similar agencies in the continuum of care. Last year, the organization introduced its drop-in center in West Palm, which was followed by Falcon’s Ridge emergency housing, aimed at offering respite to youth from foster care, human trafficking survivors, and other vulnerable individuals. The center guides them toward achieving successful independent living. The expansion of FLITE Center’s reach and its achievement in assisting county youth in need with life-changing collective impacts have only been possible through its collaboration with outstanding community leaders.

BIOGRAPHY

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. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
