Sponsorship Opportunities

This October, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Down Syndrome West Florida (FDSWF) will host the 4th FDSWF 3.21 Fun Run & Buddy Walk, Saturday, October 26th at Raymond James Stadium.  It is one of more than 275 walks taking place across the country to benefit those with Down syndrome.   Monies raised will go to supporting our many year-round programs, “THE FRIENDS CENTER” a Down syndrome center that will house a daycare, afterschool, and adult day program for the special need’s community and the National Down Syndrome Society.

Little by little our Down syndrome community is growing stronger and more unified. We have over 4,000 families in the Tampa Bay area and when we speak as a community, we are breaking down barriers.  We would like to show our community the amazing accomplishments of individuals with Down syndrome as they are now living longer, healthier and more productive lives.  They are getting married, obtaining gainful employment, voting and are more integrated into the fabric of society more than ever before.

This year we are honored as our new Mayor, Jane Castor will be participating in the event and FDSWF is receiving a commendation from Luis Viera, District 7 City Councilman as we come together to advocate and promote inclusion in a fun and inspiring fundraising event. 

If you would like to learn more about F.R.I.E.N.D.S., the Buddy Walk, and all the great things we are doing in our community, please give me a call.   To become a Sponsor please contact Jamie Santillo, FDSWF Marketing Director at (239)297-6691, *****@****.***.  Thanks so much for supporting FDSWF and our Down syndrome community!

IN 2014 MY GOAL FOR FDSWF WAS TO ESTABLISH A DOWN SYNDROME ORGANIZATION IN BRANDON THAT WE COULD ALL BE PROUD OF.  TO OFFER EDUCATION AND SUPPORT TO OUR FAMILIES IN OUR TAMPA BAY AND TO BRING OUR COMMUNITY TOGETHER.  I AM VERY PROUD OF ALL WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED  WITH OUR WONDERFUL PROGRAMS, WEBSITE, AND SOCIAL MEDIA BUT ITS TIME TO WORK ON GETTING US A PLACE OF OUR OWN.  OUR CURRENT FOCUS IS:

  • To open THE FRIENDS CENTER - A Special needs center that will offer all of FDSWF current programs and provide desperately needed daycare, after-school care, and an adult day to our special needs community..
  • Strengthen our relationships with our local hospitals and physicians.
  • Strengthen our relationships with our education system and teachers.
  • Increase our exposure in the community and make valued partnerships with other special needs agencies and community leaders.
  • Provide a Down Syndrome Clinic to meet the complex medical needs of our community.
  • Find affordable and independent living complexes that offer our adult loved ones a safe place to live. 
  • Strengthen our involvement within our government agencies’ and help them see what our Special needs community needs.  

My mission is to bring each of these needs to our community, but I need your help, please join our wonderful team to help make it happen. Thank you for supporting FDSWF.  You can reach me at (813)245-2782 or via email *****@****.***.
