For 15 years, Dreggors, Rigsby & Teal, P.A. has been proud to support the local chapters of Rotary International. In fact, several of our employees are members of all three local chapters – the Downtown, Noon and Breakfast Rotary clubs in DeLand. We enjoy giving back to the community and networking in Rotary; there are so many benefits to being involved in these clubs.
As part of that commitment, Dreggors Rigsby & Teal is proud to sponsor Rotary events. You probably have heard of the one that occurs each year in early May: The Wild Game Feast. We get knee-deep in this one! Our very own CPA and partner Ron Cantlay is a longtime member of the DeLand Breakfast Rotary, and helps to plan out the huge “Feast” every year for the club. This year, the May 1 evening of wild game dishes – including wild boar stew and fried rattlesnake – and camaraderie, welcomed a record 1,300 guests and netted approximately $85,000.
The majority of expenses of the Feast are offset by corporate sponsorships, so there’s a healthy amount to give to community nonprofits and organizations each year. So, after the numbers are crunched and nonprofits apply for grants, the DeLand Breakfast Rotary doles out the funds. Past recipients of Wild Game Feast funds include the West Volusia YMCA, The Neighborhood Center of Wet Volusia, The Good Samaritan Clinic, Volusia County Council on Aging, and many more. The $85,000 distributed this year will bring the Wild Game Feast/DeLand Breakfast Rotary’s total contributions to community agencies to more than $1.425 million.
We welcome you to join us next year; the Wild Game Feast will be held May 7, 2015. If you’d like to get involved in the Rotary and join one of our staff members for breakfast or lunch sometime, we’d to have you! Please call Ron at our office at 386-734-9441. Join Dreggors, Rigsby & Teal in giving back…it’s a great feeling.
