"Southern Wines & Spirits of America pledged $25 million to help schools by donating to Step Up For Students this year.
The Miami-based company, the second-largest private company in South Florida, is supporting the nonprofit through the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program.
On Friday, Southern Wine & Spirits President and COO Wayne E. Chaplin visited Yeshiva Elementary School in Miami Beach to honor award-winning teacher Dana Sostchin.
"Through our support of Step Up For Students scholarships, our company has helped more than 13,000 students attend schools like Yeshiva Elementary," he said.
It is the caring for the people of our communities that makes this country strong, and I think that it is a great thing that Southern Wine and Spirits has done by making the donations to this program. ;o) '
