Local Nonprofits in Broward Receive Donation From BBX Capital Foundation

The Grant Presentation event at South Florida Wellness Network celebrated exceptional mental health organizations throughout Broward County.

During a Grant Presentation Reception at the South Florida Wellness Network last month, seven nonprofit organizations in Broward County received grants totaling over $100,000 from the BBX Capital Foundation. These organizations provide supportive services to local residents with mental health or co-occurring diagnoses. The BBX Capital Foundation partnered with the Broward Behavioral Health Coalition (BBHC) to coordinate the event and identify the organizations that received the grants. BBHC is the local behavioral health managing entity in Broward County and is responsible for the contracting, monitoring, clinical quality oversight and performance improvement of state-funded behavioral health services.

Seven nonprofit organizations were granted funding from the BBX Capital Foundation. The recipients of the grants include Tomorrow’s Rainbow, SunServe, Equine Assisted Therapy, Canine Assisted Therapy, Henderson Behavioral Health, NAMI Broward, and South Florida Wellness Network. These organizations plan to utilize the funding to provide various supportive services, such as housing, education, employment and recreational activities.

During the event, the president and CEO of BBX Capital, Jarett Levan, his wife Dara Levan, and Lois Marino presented the grants to the recipients. Jarett Levan talked about the BBX Capital Foundation’s dedication to mental health wellness in the community. Broward County Vice Mayor Nan Rich and Silvia Quintana, CEO of BBHC, discussed BBHC’s 10th anniversary/history and the support it provides to the community. They also expressed gratitude to BBX Capital and the BBX Capital Foundation for their commitment to making a difference in the community. Susan Nyamora, CEO/President of South Florida Wellness Network, welcomed attendees and shared her mental health journey.

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.
