FineMark Bakes 600 Cookies for Goodwill


FineMark National Bank & Trust was once again the Presenting Sponsor for The Festival of Trees this year. The Festival, which benefits Goodwill Industries of SW Florida, is a week-long showcase of beautifully decorated trees that are auctioned off at the end of the week at the Tux & Trees Gala.

The Children's Holiday Workshop kicks the week off in downtown Fort Myers. Children enjoy holiday arts and crafts; they write letters to Santa and decorate cookies. The cookies were prepared this year at FineMark National Bank & Trust in Fort Myers. More than a dozen children from Goodwill Life Academy rolled up their sleeves to help FineMark’s Chef, Michael Gavala, make and bake 500 cookies. The cookies were then delivered to the Sydney Berne Davis Art Center downtown for a day full of decorating.
