Mr. Lucky Giving in Our Community

Coconut Telegraph

Local retired entrepreneur and philanthropist Mitchell Epstein has released his first book, Mr. Lucky: My Unexpected Journey to Success, with 100% of proceeds being donated to local charities, all supporting scholarships and less fortunate children and families in the community. Epstein, a first-time author, was inspired to write about his own life’s stories, challenges and “Mr. Lucky” perspective while mentoring two local young men who were homeless shortly before he met them. The book, a gift from the heart that Epstein hopes will inspire readers during this holiday season and beyond, demonstrates that you don’t have to be the smartest person in the room to succeed in the business world. His unique viewpoint – presented in an entertaining and easy to read format, enabled him to take what an associate called “the stupidest idea” ever and build the foundation for a business that was so successful it allowed him to retire at age 47. His passion for mentoring young people helped him recognize that his purpose in life is to inspire people to be more successful in their careers and happier in personal relationships and life.

Give Gratitude, Grateful Patient Program

If you have been a patient at Sarasota Memorial, perhaps you can look back to when the care you received exceeded your expectations. Maybe it was kind words from a doctor or nurse, the patience of a technologist who took the time to explain a procedure, or a volunteer, housekeeper or food service
