Allied Kitchen and Bath has been a member of the Fort Lauderdale Florida community for 30 years.  They continue to support many local causes and this year’s Glamathon to benefit Breast Cancer was spectacular.

All the owners and Allied staff celebrated this Breast Cancer fundraiser by wearing pink! This cause seems to touch us all, sometimes in a very personal way.

There were many fabulous things to bid on in both the silent and live auctions. Above Connie Frankino joins an enthusiastic crowd in the live auction with members Beverly Stewart and Lynn Sciarrone enjoying the excitement.

We had an opportunity to interview Connie about how she came to found KidSanctuary Campus, what touches her the most and what she wants us to know the most.

Thank you to the Feinberg family and staff for a wonderful time and an opportunity to support such a great cause. We are wondering, will we be seeing your “pink throne” at Take a Seat?
