FRLA raises more than $750,000 for OneOrlando Fund

The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association is honored to announce that the hospitality industry raised more than $750,000 to support the victims of the recent tragedy in Orlando. The funds were collected during Dine Out for Orlando United, a fundraising event led by the FRLA in partnership with VISIT FLORIDA on June 30. Nearly 1,500 restaurant locations across the state participated and their contributions were submitted directly to the OneOrlando Fund. During the event, guests dined at participating restaurants and made direct donations. Restaurateurs donated a percentage of their daily receipts, from 10 percent to 100 percent, to the fund. Employees worked a shift, volunteered their time, or donated a portion of their tips. Businesses raised awareness by promoting, organizing or donating directly to the OneOrlando Fund. Local establishments reported lines out the door throughout the day, specifically for the Dine Out for Orlando United effort.

Jewish Family Services receives grant

JFS Orlando recently received a grant for over $150,000, the largest grant this year, through the Orange County Community Development Block grant programs. The funds will be used to assist with much needed agency renovations, including replacing air conditioning units, installing new sewer lines, creating a new lobby space and upgrading the building entry to be ADA accessible. The increased safety and accessibility improvements to the facility will enable JFS Orlando to create a healthier, more suitable environment for clients, staff, tenants and other agency visitors.
