St. Petersburg, FL. (June 25, 2015) – The Grand Central District Association (GCDA) is commemorating its 15th anniversary with a series of events through the month of July. The events showcase the Grand Central District’s progress and its diverse mix of businesses, and also will raise money for GCDA, a 501c3 organization.
“The Grand Central District Association is extremely excited to reach this milestone and celebrate the District’s growth,” says Lauren Ruiz, GCDA’s Executive Director/Main Street Manager. “Neither GCDA nor Grand Central would be where they are today without the business owners’ dedication to both the revitalization of the District, and to helping each other thrive. The Grand Central District’s success has truly been a community effort.”
