In today’s economic climate, many have the tendency to “cut back” and adopt the mentality of “look out for number one”. But not downtown Clearwater merchant Angela Gioffrè, who owns “Gioffrè”- a woman’s clothing store featuring high-end Italian designs.
Saturday, September 6th, Angela opened up her beautiful boutique located at 8 South Ft. Harrison, to raise funds for the renovation of the building previously known as the “Bill Irle Dinner Theater” located at 1411 Ft. Harrison. The theater was purchased by The Community Learning Center and, upon completion of the renovation, will supply the much needed additional space for their expansion.
”At the end of the day, we are responsible for our own lives. If anything happens to us, don’t blame somebody else. Backtrack and look at what you did to contribute to that. You also contribute to your successes. Once you learn that, you’re on your way.”

Study Shows Economic Impact of Florida Boys & Girls Clubs On Local Communities
Tallahassee, Fla. – Young people who attend Boys & Girls Clubs in Florida show higher high school graduation rates and better behavior, resulting in increased lifetime earnings and hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for the state in costs for health care and incarceration. These results, announced today by Florida Lt. Governor Jeff Kottkamp, were the findings of a research study conducted by the Florida TaxWatch Research Institute.
Florida TaxWatch Research Institute, Inc. (known as Florida TaxWatch), a non-profit, non-partisan research institute based in Tallahassee, with assistance from MGT of America, Inc., conducted a comprehensive study of the economic impact of Florida Boys & Girls Clubs (FBGC) on local communities throughout the state.
