Thanks to community support, Loveland Center, Inc., a nonprofit that provides educational and vocational programs, as well as support services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, recently netted more than $150,000 during its 9th annual Loveland Christmas Barbecue. The Venice Community Center was filled with more than 550 guests and 30 volunteers for the barbecue bash, benefiting the legacy of the 55-year-old nonprofit. Scott Pinkerton, the managing partner of Pinkerton Wealth Management Group, and Amy Archer, the principal at Garden Elementary, served as the masters of ceremonies. The Frances and William Baxter Charitable Foundation pledged to match gifts to Loveland Center up to $50,000 that evening. The audience accepted the challenge, and the match was met and exceeded by $6,500 in less than two hours.
