Brooks Tropicals raises funds for baby's transplant

Brooks Tropicals held a luncheon fundraiser to raise money for 10 month old Mable Elizabeth Strano. Mable has rare Di George's Syndrome and needs a thymus gland transplant.

Mable's aunt, Vicky Vargas is a Purchasing Buyer at Brooks Tropicals. Sales, Accounting, Administration, Human Resources, the Packing House and Shipping all participated in the fundraiser. With Pal Brooks' and Craig Wheeling's corporate donation of $500, the grand total raised was over $1500.

Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Vicky.

Our thoughts will continue to be with Mable and her family.
