Niceville Office Giving Back During the Holidays

Niceville Charity Dec 2021

Let it be known, Team Niceville HAS THROWN DOWN THE GAUNTLET.  Last week, the Premier Niceville office challenged themselves to raise $2,500 to support The Twin Cities Pavilion and Plew Elementary School in Niceville.  True to form, they exceeded their goal and raised over $3,400 and Premier matched $2,500 for a total of $5,400.  We are off to a great start, thank you team Niceville!

 A special shout-out to Mary Gianelloni for her leadership of the Niceville efforts and to Tim and Anne Williams for highlighting the PWUMC.  Mary G, Tim and Anne, your quiet dedication and constant drive to positively impact the communities you live and work in is inspiring to us all.
