Summit Brokerage Services, Inc., ranked the #1 Independent Boutique Broker-Dealer in the country*, helped make the holidays much happier for one South Florida toddler and her parents. Summit’s CEO, Marshall Leeds, saw a story on the news about a local clinic, Caridad Center, which had an 18 month-old patient in dire need of eye surgery. Guilliana suffered from severe esotropia, which is a form of strabismus, or “squint”, in which one eye turned inward. The doctor performing the surgery said she was at risk of losing her sight if the problem was not fixed by Christmas. Summit donated $1,000 towards Guilliana’s medical bills and we are happy to inform you that the surgery was successfully completed on December 20 and Guilliana is recovering very well.
Summit was pleased to help Guilliana and we are delighted to see what Caridad Center is doing in our community. Caridad Center offers comprehensive medical, dental, and vision care and is the largest clinic of its kind in the state of Florida. Caridad is a free clinic for patients and their families who do not have insurance. Their goal is to help the working poor population stay healthy so that they can be productive individuals in their community.
