SARASOTA, Fla., — Neal Communities recently donated its fifth payment of $20,000, to complete a $100,000 total gift, towards the Lakewood Ranch office building campaign for space shared by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Manatee County. Neal was a top-level benefactor of the building campaign, joining over 130 businesses, organizations, and individuals who worked together over the past five years to support the project.
“We are so pleased to see what a valuable community asset this building has become,” said Pat Neal, president of the award-winning, new home building company, Neal Communities. “Both the Chamber and United Way offer crucial services for Manatee County residents, and they are a most welcomed neighbor here in Lakewood Ranch,” said Neal.
The new building is known as the “Dan & Corrine McClure Center” in honor of the McClure family’s sizable donation to the building fund and their long history of community activism. The 9,000-square-foot facility includes private office suites for each organization along with common shared spaces.
