Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, frequently contributes to nonprofits and events in the locations where the company’s employees and customers live and work. The builder is sponsoring two upcoming events in the amount of $5,000 each.
The Manatee County Fair will be held January 12-22, 2023, at the Manatee County Fairgrounds, 1303 17th St. W in Palmetto. Neal Communities’ sponsorship of The Fair dates back at least 10 years and supports the variety of activities at this family friendly event.
Pat Neal, founder and chairman of Neal Communities said, “Supporting the Manatee County Fair brings back great memories for me. I always loved going to the county fair as a child growing up in Iowa, and I believe the Manatee County Fair is an opportunity for families to enjoy time together and celebrate the educational aspects of the industries that support our county as well as the entertainment at the fair.”
In addition to Neal Communities’ $5,000 sponsorship of the Manatee County Fair, Pat Neal is also personally purchasing steer and swine totaling $2,250 in support of the Manatee River Fair Association. This contribution is something that he has done for many years, and typically, he donates them to a local church.
Neal Communities is also sponsoring Palmetto Youth Center’s MLK Weekend Celebration in the amount of $5,000. Held January 13-15, the celebration includes a banquet, parade, talent show and church service.
The Palmetto Youth Center makes a difference in students’ and families’ lives through educational initiatives, mentoring programs, athletic and character-building activities.
Neal Communities has a philanthropic culture and a core belief that “Where You Live Matters.” The latest giving is part of more than $7.75 million Neal Communities has donated to local charities and causes throughout Southwest Florida.
