|Florida Scholastic Regatta|
After returning at 2 am this morning from Nashivlle, I was honored to be a speaker at the Florida Scholastic Regatta at the Florida World Aquatic Center in Sarasota. This unbelievable rowing facility was built thru the dedication of the late Nate Benderson, and his son Randy. I had a chance to share with the people there today my thoughts on the generousity of the Benderson family and how they have also been vital in helping us in the battle against cancer with the V Foundation. I had a great morning meeting some young outstanding athletes. This facility is absolutely the best according to people in the know on rowing. It is located at Nathan Benderson Park off of University Parkway. It was a thrill to be there and to pay tribute to Mr. Benderson who recently passed away at the age of 93. My good friend, County Commissioner, Joe Barbetta was there and introduced me to address the crowd.
