On April 24th, the City of Orlando, honored Delivering Good by proclaiming the day as “Delivering Good Day”. The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, an organization that has made an extraordinary impact in Central Florida and has served as a strong supporter of Delivering Good, hosted the celebration. The event commemorated the incredible collaboration with local community partners, and provided leaders in the fashion, philanthrophy, finance and hospitality industries an inside look into the collaboration and commitment of all involved to execute this meaningful work.
