Breakthru Florida named Outstanding Corporation of the Year by Association of Fundraising Professionals

Nov. 22, 2016

Serving as one of the largest distributors of wine, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages in the state, Breakthru Beverage Florida’s mission isn’t limited to servicing its customers, but to also use its resources to make a positive difference in the community.


As a result of charitable contributions to supporting educational development of young Florida students, Breakthru FL is thrilled to accept the honor of being named Outstanding Corporation of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, becoming the first beverage company to win the award.


“We’re honored to accept this prestigious recognition from AFP,” said Breakthru South Region President Bob Drinon. “Supporting education has been a staple of our culture at Breakthru Beverage Florida, and we’re especially flattered to have been nominated by our incredible charity partner–Junior Achievement of South Florida.”


The Junior Achievement of South Florida is a nonprofit preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Breakthru FL recently served as the presenting sponsor at JA’s Circle of Wise Women Uncorked Event, and also has committed support to upcoming JA events for the next three years. Throughout the history of the partnership, Breakthru FL and JA have raised more than one million dollars that has gone to supporting the development of JA educational programs, which positively impacts nearly 50,000 K-12 students.


Supporting the education of Florida’s youth is a cause Breakthru is proud to help develop. In addition to its work with JA, the company’s 2015-2016 contributions to the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program has resulted in more than 11,000 students receiving academic scholarships.


Congratulations to Breakthru FL on receiving this recognition for its continued work in supporting the educational development of Florida students.
