She is a past president and supporter of Rotary Club's fundraising efforts and mission to positively change lives through service, across the street, and around the world.

Food for Thought

Many children suffer from what the USDA refers to as "Food insecurity," which means they worry about where their next meal will come from. Public schools receive government assistance to provide breakfast and lunch for these children on school days, but what happens on the weekends? In Okaloosa and Walton Counties, Food For Thought is enabling children to focus on their development and education by providing backpacks filled with easy-to-prepare healthy meals. We are proud to support Food for Thought in its mission by volunteering our time to stuff backpacks with food as well as fundraising for their annual Stock the Pantry event. In 2022, team Newman-Dailey raised $56K for Food for Thought. Since 2015, the Newman-Dailey team has gathered 155,342 food items and raised more than $154K in donations. 

Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation

Newman-Dailey is a proud supporter of the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, which serves as a champion for cultural arts and education in Northwest Florida. Newman-Dailey is a regular supporter of the Festival of the Arts, which benefits their All Kinds of Art educational outreach in area schools.

Bonefish Celebrity Server Luncheon

In 2012, the Newman-Dailey team held its own fundraising event, the Bonefish Celebrity Server Luncheon, to raise money for United Way and the American Cancer Society. Joined by former New Orleans Saints Cornerback Tracy Porter, the 2012 luncheon raised more than $24,000.
