TIM & AMBER SMITH
“Whenever I devote my time or money to an organization, my world continues to expand and it never fails that I am blown away at the amazing people in our community,” says Tim Smith.
He and his wife Amber were introduced to The Wooden Floor after being invited to support the Keep the Promise Wine Tasting Benefit™ by the event’s Honorary Co-Chairs Janice and John Markley. After the Benefit, the Smith’s dedication was immediate. “I love that The Wooden Floor provides a rare multifaceted approach to the families it serves – from college prep to dance education to family services and beyond. They meet immediate needs but also provide long-term strategies for helping families succeed. The approach also has the statistics to prove it’s working,” says Tim.
As their love for the organization grew, Tim decided to initiate a unique and generous twist on his personal giving by incorporating it into his business model. His company, The Smith Group now donates to The Wooden Floor on behalf of his clients at the close of a sale. “Giving back to the community has been ingrained in me since childhood, and it is a core value I have always used in my business practice. Giving allows us to look beyond ourselves and invest in the lives of others.”
The Smiths have joined as sponsors of Keep the Promise Wine Tasting Benefit™ for the second year, inviting their own guests to get to know the organization through the spectacular Benefit. “It has been such a blessing for Amber and me to get a glimpse into the work of The Wooden Floor. When I find an organization that is doing amazing work, I want to showcase it to other people who may be inspired to get behind the cause as well.”
