I had the great pleasure of working with Anne while I was CEO at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County. Anne served as a tremendous volunteer and board member working on behalf of the kids we served. Anne used her significant fund raising skills and networking ability to raise much needed operating revenue for the Club’s budget. In addition to serving as a board member, Anne Chaired our extremely successful Women’s Leadership Council that not only raised funds but increased our awareness in the community to an all time high! Anne is one of the most unselfish people I have worked with in my 46 year career. She and Sal requested that contributions be made to the Club instead of receiving gifts for their wedding, resulting in thousands and thousands of dollars to help the kids who need us most. Anne is involved with many worthwhile non-profits in our community continuing to provide support, leadership and love. Anne has all the professional skills one would need but more importantly, she possesses common sense and a tremendous work ethic. Anne would be a tremendous asset to any group or project in this wonderful community we all call home.

A true “go-getter” and advocate/ambassador extraordinaire for families who are dealing with a diagnosis of epilepsy. Anne is creative, innovative and has an incredible social network that she fully engages in the organizations that she is helping to promote. Anne never disappoints – she delivers! Thank you Anne Weintraub for helping to offer HOPE to children and families with epilepsy.

I first met Anne in 2008. I contacted her upon the recommendation of a very wise mentor when I moved to Sarasota. Even though she did not know me, she was kind and gracious and introduced me into some organizations and to some people who helped me acclimate to my new city. She went above and beyond without any hesitation or reward. Recently I had the opportunity to collaborate with Anne on a pro-bono legal matter. I was impressed with her commitment to and advocacy for the individual. Anne’s dedication was evident throughout the process, but especially during the issue recognition and strategy phase. Her responses were timely and thorough. More than anything I appreciate her conduct and efficacy during this entire collaboration. I have also seen her work tirelessly for many non-profit organizations. She is a true CHAMPION for the defenseless!
