    SARASOTA/BRADENTON, FL - For years, it has been the policy of Goodwill Manasota to provide emergency assistance to community residents who are in need by providing clothing and essential household items through its Referral-to-Voucher Program. Whether it is a family that has survived a fire, a child coming from a low-income home or entering the foster care system who has insufficient clothing, a social service client entering transitional housing, a victim of domestic abuse who was forced to flee without any possessions, or a job-seeker without attire suitable for an impending job interview, Goodwill is there with the resources to help them get back on their feet and on the path to better days. 


    Additionally, during the winter months – in instances where temperatures are predicted to drop below freezing – authorized Goodwill representatives may provide blankets and/or outerwear at no charge to persons who are homeless.

    Approved agencies must make the referral for community members to benefit from the voucher program. Some of the area agencies on Goodwill's list include the American Red Cross, CareerSource, Children First, First Step of Sarasota, JFCS of the Suncoast, the Sarasota County and Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Safe Children Coalition, SPARCC, and Women's Resource Center. New on Goodwill's approved agency list is the All Star Children's Foundation, a local organization dedicated to healing the effects of trauma suffered by children who have been abused. Children who are coming into care will have access to clothing, with house parents in charge of the shopping.

    “All Star is thrilled to collaborate with Goodwill to help provide for the children and families we serve,” said Stephen Fancher, chief development officer for All Star Children’s Foundation. “Community partnerships are a pillar of All Star’s programs and we are very happy to partner with Goodwill to provide much-needed clothes and other essential items for the children moving onto our Campus of Hope & Healing.”

    Those who benefit from voucher assistance are offered the opportunity to take a budgeting class – either from the referring agency, if available, or Goodwill – in order to help them establish greater financial stability in the future. Additionally, Goodwill encourages voucher beneficiaries who are looking to elevate their career prospects to seek assistance through its Job Connection career services program, which is free.

    "At Goodwill, our goal is not just to address urgent needs but also to help community members achieve long-term stability and reach life goals," said Goodwill Manasota Vice President Margie Genter. "Even needs that arise due to crisis can result in the creation of connections to resources that end up improving lives once the immediate crisis has been resolved. We are grateful to our agency partners for their work and trusted referrals of community members in need."

    In addition to referrals made by partner agencies, eligible Goodwill Manasota team members can receive work clothing and emergency assistance, in accordance with voucher program policy. For more about Goodwill, go to experiencegoodwill.org or call 941-355-2721.

    Conditioned Air Company today announced that it has moved into its newly constructed operations center in Fort Myers. The 52,710-square-foot facility will enable the air-conditioning contracting and service firm to further expand its employment base and better serve its residential and commercial clients throughout Southwest Florida.

    The Lee/Charlotte Operations Center is located at the intersection of Jetport Loop and Global Parkway in the Southwest International Commerce Park just across from the Southwest Florida International Airport and provides convenient access to Interstate 75.

    The building encompasses approximately 10,800 square feet of office space, 31,110 square feet of warehouse space, and 10,800 square feet of mezzanine for storage and future expansion. It will house the firm’s Residential Replacements team, Lee County Service and Maintenance teams, Estimating, and Lee County Production Housing team.

    “This new facility will serve as the firm’s central hub for the growing Lee and Charlotte County markets and will provide operational support for our Naples headquarters and Sarasota branches,” said Tim Dupre, President and Chief Executive Officer for Conditioned Air. “It also will house our main training facility with a fully functional lab for hands-on continuous education and onboarding of entry level technicians.”

    The building was designed by the architectural firm of McHarris Planning & Design and was built and developed by Seagate Development Group. It features a dramatic exterior that is similar to Conditioned Air’s recently renovated corporate headquarters in Naples.

    Conditioned Air had been searching more than two years for the right location to meet its operational needs due to continuous growth and strategic plan of the company. The company currently has 185 employees in Collier County, 124 employees in Lee County and 61 employees in Sarasota County with plans to double in size in the next five to seven years. A majority of that growth is projected to be in Lee and Sarasota counties.

    “We continue to be very excited about the outlook for Conditioned Air,” Dupre said. “We anticipate that future growth will be fueled by a combination of organic growth through the company and potential acquisitions of other air-conditioning firms in the market.”

    Conditioned Air has been helping make Southwest Florida more comfortable since 1962. It is currently the region’s largest air-conditioning contracting and service firm with a total of 370 employees serving Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee counties.

    Conditioned Air offers local expertise in light commercial and residential HVAC systems, including design, engineer, estimate, installation and maintenance of new construction, refrigeration, indoor air quality and dehumidification systems.

    SouthTech, the premier technology service provider of Sarasota, recently pledged a $2,500 sponsorship of Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT). The company, which has been in business for 25 years, is a new supporter of WBTT; both organizations look forward to continuing the partnership into the future.

    SouthTech, which will be listed as a “Director” sponsor in the troupe’s 2020-2021 program book, recognizes the importance of supporting local cultural organizations. The company sponsors many local institutions aligned with the arts and WBTT is a welcome addition to that group. Sarasota is particularly blessed with a wide variety of diverse cultural institutions, from museums and aquariums to performing arts centers.

    “As important as it is to support local businesses, it’s just as important to support your local nonprofits,” said Henry Decoo, Business Development & Marketing Manager at SouthTech. “Especially organizations with unique offerings that enrich our community, as Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe does. We are pleased to sponsor WBTT’s 2020-2021 season.”

    WHEN THE AMERICAN FASHION photographer Richard Avedon took the advice of 20-year-old German actress Nastassja Kinski to photograph her in sultry repose, naked, with a large boa constrictor unspooling along her body, they created one of the most iconic images of the 1980s: “Nastassja with the Serpent.”

    Produced by the media company Condé Nast as a poster, it may have embellished almost every bastion of young male and some female hangouts in North America and Europe in those days — college campus dorms and fraternities, in particular.

    But its popularity doesn’t mean Avedon and Kinski got the image right; they didn’t. That’s because they didn’t have Gretchen Bauer.

    Founder, CEO and chief designer of the Sarasota-based BSWANKY handbags, she’s established an international market for a company not quite three years old that manufactures objects d’art with both beauty and utility in mind for women.

    And now she’s designing handbags, not only with eel skin or cowhide, but with wild-caught pythons from the Everglades. Newly killed and tanned, each snake’s skin is different, and thus each handbag is unique. It would have been a lot easier, and perhaps just as lovely or more so, if Ms. Kinski had simply donned one of Ms. Bauer’s python handbags, getting swanky with art rather than merely naked with a snake.

    The first time Gretchen Bauer traveled with a BSWANKY python handbag, she sold two in an airport security line. Striking and stylish, the bag can be converted to a backpack when needed. COURTESY PHOTO

    BSWANKY bags can be quickly converted from handbag to backpack — say at the airport, in the TSA line, where Ms. Bauer sold two the first time she traveled with a bag — then back again for an evening soiree in a distant city, she says.

    That seems oddly appropriate for a python-skin bag, especially since the invasive predators themselves can seem to appear and disappear like smoke in the Everglades, returning in larger numbers and different settings later after eating a wide variety of Florida’s native mammals, along with reptiles, amphibians, birds, but so far, no humans.

    Pythons are now among the most destructive invasive creatures ever to enter the Sunshine State and the Everglades. But they’re fascinating in behavior and even beautiful in appearance.

    Left: Jill Lonstein-Meistrich (center), bought three BSWANKY python-skin bags the night she met company founder Gretchen Bauer (left) at a factory wine and cheese tasting event. Right: Traci Smullen with a BSWANKY python handbag that converts to a backpack.

    “No two skins are alike,” explained Ms. Bauer, who recently received 35 new skins from Amy Siewe, a highly skilled python hunter in a profession that can quickly turn dangerous, especially at night in the Sea of Grass, with snakes over 10 or 12 feet.

    “The colors, patterns, shapes, sizes — they’re all totally different,” said Ms. Bauer.

    That would create an unhappy challenge for some designers — the ones who own snake farms in Indonesia and use python skins commercially raised to control not just the price, but the patterns and thus the ability to mass produce products.

    “But that’s not a problem for us,” Ms. Bauer insisted. Mass production is not her goal.

    Something else would also create a challenge for many manufacturers of handbags and other products in the garment industry: treating employees — women in particular — well. Or even just treating them fairly.

    Do well by doing good

    For Ms. Bauer — an entrepreneur whose chief ambition, perhaps, is not big production but big good — one of the key purposes of the business is to empower women, she says. Especially women who work for her, or women she meets and discovers to be mistreated or unfairly treated in their work lives.

    In looking to start the business she toured factories in Texas and Florida. She finally built a factory in San Antonio and brought in women working for a manufacturer who paid them less than minimum wage because they worked at home, she recalls.

    When she discovered San Antonio was too far for her to travel and manage the business correctly, “I left them with the building and all the equipment — so they’re better off than they were, by far. The distance for me was just too challenging.”

    “Left them with.” In other words, she gave it to them. Now the bags are made in Sarasota.

    As it turns out, Ms. Bauer is an aggressive philanthropist.

    Five percent of all sales from the high-end BSWANKY handbags, with prices running in the $1,800 and up range, are donated to the South Florida National Parks Trust, along with all sales profits from the company’s popular $60 python key chains. The nonprofit trust is devoted to preserving four of Florida’s gems, a goal and places also dear to Ms. Bauer, she says: Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, Biscayne National Park and the Big Cypress National Preserve.

    She donates profits or handbags for charity auctions and to do-good organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Frisco, Texas, where she created “a crazy pink bag of western tooled leather to stay true to their western roots, one of our best sellers. We increased the breast-cancer-awareness-month giveback of 10% to 20%.”

    BSWANKY also supports Tidewell Hospice and its blue butterfly house for grieving families, in Sarasota, Venice and Port Charlotte; and Josh Provides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation. Among others.

    Raised on the mainline in Philadelphia — the close comfortable suburbs of the City of Brotherly Love — she studied at Vanderbilt University, went on to the Philadelphia Textile School (now Philadelphia University), and worked as an interior decorator for 25 years, a world that challenged and polished both her business acumen and her creativity.

    Now once again, she said, “I’m thinking outside the bag.”

    Why clients adore her

    She pays employees at her factory and showroom in Sarasota well over the industry rate, she notes, and “they all receive a bag a month. So they’re all carrying $1,800 handbags. We fill the refrigerator with fruit, give them coffee and handbags, and give them a flexible atmosphere. We don’t work on Fridays. If other (business owners) would just do that kind of thing, the rewards they get would be worth it. And it’s FUN!”

    She also listens to her employees, incorporating their design ideas into the bags, she says.

    Ms. Bauer’s consideration of working women, along with her pragmatism, her creativity and her handbag aesthetic, appeals to her customers — she calls them clients.

    Rochelle Coburn has taken BSWANKY bags the farthest, perhaps — carrying one at the royal wedding of Meghan Markle to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle, in 2018, with her husband, and to the U.S. Capitol, where she worked for years, including as an aide to Rep. Curt Clawson, who gave up his political career in Florida’s 19th congressional district in 2017 to be with his elderly parents.

    “I discovered them on social media, from a blogger on Instagram — and I went to an event at their store,” said Christal Gentile, a Realtor at Michael Saunders & Co, who owns four BSWANKY handbags.

    “Their story is amazing, from the beginning to what they’re doing now, empowering women, giving back to the community.

    “I always tell Gretchen when I visit them: I leave in a better mood than when I got there.”

    Jill Lonstein-Meitrich fell in love with Ms. Bauer’s kind enthusiasm, good will and design talent during a wine-and-cheese event at the factory. “I ended up buying three bags that evening,” she said. “Now, I’m the proud owner of eight! I absolutely love the outstanding quality, versatility and uniqueness of these beautiful bags. Each bag is a work of art. Oh, and the compliments!”

    And Traci Smullen, co-owner with her husband of a medical cannabis company, AltMed, including 23 dispensaries throughout Florida operating under the name MÜV, puts it like this: “In my mind there are lots of ways to run a business. Her inspiration and the way she’s gone about building her business — the working conditions she’s created — is just a phenomenal story to me. I love it.

    “You can appreciate nice things. Louis Vuitton, Chanel and all that. Those are beautiful, wonderful handbags. You can put her designs right up there with any of those, but you can elevate her in your appreciation because of her mindset.”

    Doing good, in other words, is good marketing.

    “There are certain women who go above and beyond, to help other women. They’re not threatened by other women. If they see a woman trying hard and building something, they’ll do whatever they can.”

    Ms. Smullen is that way, too, she points out.

    “I sit on the board of the Josh Provides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation. She was quick to donate a handbag or two at various fundraising events. That’s been helpful.” ¦

    It may be hard to swallow, but small mammals—a crucial part of the Everglades ecosystem—are being decimated by invasive Burmese pythons.  BSWANKY, a luxury handbag design house based in Sarasota, Florida, is stepping up by partnering with python hunter Amy Siewe (one of the winners of the 2020 Python Bowl), to help put an end to the destruction of our Everglades ecosystem in our new ​Conservation is The Key initiative.

    Using invasive python skin from snakes captured in the Everglades, BSWANKY creates luxury accessories, and gives 100% of the sale of each BSWANKY python keychain to the ​South Florida National Parks Trust. ​In addition, five percent of the sales on all python handbags will
    also be given back.  These sought after luxury python handbags are owned by Tori Spelling, Tiffany Cuban, and Faith Hill, and may just be the solution.

    Two women, one cause.

    Through fashion, BSWANKY aims to re-establish the natural harmony of the Everglades ecosystem, while using the whole animal rather than allowing their skins to be thrown into landfills. Albeit an unfortunate situation, the Everglades pythons provide an opportunity to
    create beautiful handbags while giving back to the Everglades.
    Python Facts:
    ● Exotic pets gone wrong:​ introduced as pets to South Florida,
    pythons both escaped and were released into the wild, causing an
    environmental disaster
    ● Pythons’ rapid rate of reproduction has brought their population
    to an unsustainable and overpopulated number:​ over 300,000
    ● They have disrupted the natural food chain and caused an
    environmental disaster, preying on mammals such as rabbits and deer,
    decimating their population numbers and eliminating them as a food
    source for indigenous predators such as bobcats and the endangered
    Florida panther
    They have no natural predators in their introduced habitats
    Initiative Talking Points:
    ● The initiative uses a local supply of python skins, a sustainable and ​ethical alternative to imported, farm-raised python​ commonly used by major luxury brands
    ● Two women from traditionally male-dominated industries coming together to find solutions
    ● Conservation is The Key​: 100% of sales of $60 keychains goes to the South Florida National Parks Trust
    ● Scaling up our givebacks:​ 5% of sales on all python bags goes directly to the South Florida National Parks Trust
    ● Giving back in style: ​up-and-coming woman-owned luxury handbag company raising awareness and funding outdoor education programs and restoration projects
    ● Bags are designed and handcrafted in our atelier in Sarasota, Florida
    ● In the past two years, BSWANKY has donated over $100,000 in handbags
    ● We are available anytime anywhere for interviews
    South Florida National Parks Trust Information:
    ● The South Florida National Parks Trust is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 2002 to support four national parks in South Florida – Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks and Big Cypress National Preserve.
    ● Since its inception, the South Florida National Parks Trust has successfully funded more than 100 projects representing a combined investment of more than $9 million in South Florida’s national parks.

    Blake Medical Center is pleased to announce that it has received certification from DNV GL Healthcare as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, reflecting the highest level of competence for treatment of serious stroke events.  This makes Blake Medical Center the first and only certified Comprehensive Stroke Center in Manatee County.

     

    “Stroke care requires the highest level of performance, both individually and organizationally. That is the only way to achieve the extreme efficiency needed to meet the time-critical nature of these events, and produce the highest quality outcomes,” says Mitchell Rubinstein, Chief Medical Officer Blake Medical Center. “This certification from DNV GL validates all the effort we have put into this program and to ensuring the health and safety of our patients.” 

    The DNV GL Healthcare Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification is based on standards set forth by the Brain Attack Coalition and the American Stroke Association and affirms that the medical center addresses the full spectrum of stroke care – diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and education – and establishes clear metrics to evaluate outcomes.

     

    “We are excited to be the very first and only certified Comprehensive Stroke Center in Manatee County.  Our program provides compassionate, specialized care and treatment for any type of stroke.  This eliminates potential transfer needs for specialized stroke care, thereby allowing Manatee County residents to remain close to home regardless of the neurological condition requiring acute treatment, ” says Randy Currin, President and Chief Executive Officer Blake Medical Center. “Blake Medical Center is proud to provide the most complete neurological program in the county.”

     

    Comprehensive stroke centers are typically the largest and best-equipped hospitals in a given geographical area that can treat any kind of stroke or stroke complication. In a growing number of states, stroke center certification determines to which facility a patient should be taken for the most appropriate, reimbursable care.

     

    “Achieving certification shows commitment to excellence,” says Patrick Horine, CEO of DNV GL Healthcare. “And it helps demonstrate to your community that you are performing at the highest level.”

    U.S. News & World Report named Sarasota Memorial Hospital among 37 “standout” hospitals with top ratings in all 10 chronic conditions and medical procedures evaluated in its “Best Hospitals” guide this year. As in previous years, SMH again ranked No. 1 in the Sarasota-Bradenton-North Port region and among the Top 10 in Florida. Sarasota Memorial CEO David Verinder attributes the consistently high ratings to the hospital staff’s longstanding public mission. “I cannot recognize our physicians, nurses, leadership team and entire staff enough for their commitment to this community and the care they provide to our patients each and every day,” Verinder said. “Their efforts have been truly heroic during this pandemic, and it is that unwavering diligence and dedication that will always set Sarasota Memorial apart.”
