New Leadership Takes the Reigns at Unicorn Children's Foundation

Boca Raton, FL -- July 29, 2015 – A new Executive Committee has been elected to lead the Unicorn Children’s Foundation, the leading incubator of special needs projects.  This group of individuals bring a wealth of business savviness and commitment to community that will help the organization expand its impact and ensure the success and inclusion of individuals who think, communicate differently. 

Gregory Fried, of Gregory’s Fine Jewelry, has been elected as President of the Board of Directors.  Mr. Fried has served as a Director for the organization since 2012 and was Vice-President from 2014-2015.  The Executive Committee supporting Gregory Fried include: Vice-President John Sternal, of Merit Mile; Treasurer Tabitha LeTourneau Meyerer, CFP, of United Capital; and Secretary Rafael Cabrera, M.D., of Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton.

Unicorn’s Executive Director, Sharon Alexander expresses, “Gregory Fried’s history of giving back to the community inspires others to dream more, learn more, and do more.  We believe that his vision will help us to build communities of acceptance, support, and opportunity for individuals and families challenged by neurodiversity.”  Currently 1 of 6 children are labeled as damaged because 1 of 6 children are diagnosed with autism, ADHD, dyslexia and other neurodiversities. 

Mr. Fried shared, “It's truly an honor to serve this wonderful foundation. I will serve to the best of my ability as well as in the best interest of the foundation.  As we begin our 21st year, we hope to bring those in our community together and support great programs that will allow these wonderful and amazing children an opportunity to have a voice in this world.”

The late Dr. Stanley Greenspan, a beneficiary of Unicorn Children’s Foundation said it best, “All children have within them the potential to be great.  It is our job to create a great world where their potential can flourish.” Stay tuned for Unicorn Children’s Foundation’s upcoming events and learn how you can help us create a better world for our special children!
