SARASOTA, FL—Phil King, former CEO of The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center, is teaming up with Gabriel Hament of Cumberland Advisors to co-host “Miracles on 17th Street”, a fundraising gala benefitting Glasser/Schoenbaum. The multi-generational duo spans half a century; an intentional strategy King conceived with the organization’s current CEO, Dr. Kameron Hodgens, to unite veteran philanthropists with the region’s emerging class of young leaders.

In an effort to enhance the Center’s mission and inspire the next generation of young patrons, “Miracles on 17th Street”—which will take place on November 19th, 5:30PM at the 17th Street campus – will present surprises about the future growth of the Center. King and Hament find the unconventional partnership valuable. “Phil made a special effort to invite Sarasota's up-and-coming cohort of young professionals to the table. I am fortunate to have Phil as a mentor. He is a visionary," says Hament.

The beneficiary of their efforts, Glasser/Schoenbaum, celebrates its 27th year of service to the Sarasota-Manatee region. Once a dream of Dr. Kay Glasser, the Center now houses over 17 individual health and human services agencies, which collectively help over 45,000 underserved adults, children and families. The “Campus of Caring” has saved tenant organizations over $13.5 million since the Center’s establishment in 1990. Dr. Hodgens remarks, “A two-generational approach is most effective in delivering human services and in promoting smart philanthropy as well.”
