Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society Calls for 2020 Night of Champions Nominations

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) is seeking nominations and sponsors in preparation for its 11th Annual Night of Champions celebration of workplace success stories.

“Night of Champions is designed to highlight employees and their employers who, through dedication and leadership, illuminate the possibilities and benefits of inclusive communities and workspaces,” said Night of Champions chairman Tom Kenkel. “We welcome nominees from all over the lowcountry and would love to hear from anyone with an uplifting story to share.”

Employee nominations may be completed online at https://nightofchampions.org, and will remain open until Friday, February 28.

The selected individuals and their employers will be invited as special guests to the Night of Champions dinner on Thursday, April 2, at 6 p.m. at the Savannah Convention Center.

Last year’s honorees included Erik Glasford, Effingham Health System; Meghan Mayle,
Bubba Gumbo’s Seafood Restaurant; Reginald Horton, The Savannah Bananas; Chris Maynor, DIRTT Environmental Solutions; and Chris Holt, Tybee Island YMCA. Amy Wright, owner of Bitty & Beau’s Coffee, was the recipient of the 2019 President’s Award.

The evening will include a recognition ceremony, a silent auction benefiting LDSS and a cash bar, with Cyreia Sandlin serving as the night’s emcee. This year’s President’s Award honoree is Will Howell of WillPower Ties.

“The success of Night of Champions is directly tied to local organizations that create opportunities for people to demonstrate their desire to work and make valued contributions to their community,” Kenkel said. “The achievements of these champions in the workforce inspire more local organizations to take up the mission to light the way.”

LDSS is also seeking sponsors to support Night of Champions as it raises money to sustain the programs it offers throughout the year, including Camp Buddy for children with Down syndrome, its annual Buddy Walk in Forsyth Park and its weekly support meetings for the families and friends of individuals with Down syndrome.

Pinnacle Medical Group Welcomes Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sarah Cazorla to Beaufort Dermatology
Provider Brings New Range of Comprehensive Women’s Services to Lowcountry Patients

(BLUFFTON/BEAUFORT, S.C.) Pinnacle Medical Group is pleased to announce that Dr. Sarah Cazorla has joined its Beaufort Dermatology location, bringing with her plastic and reconstructive surgeries previously unavailable to patients in the area.

Cazorla is published in the field of breast cancer and has been practicing medicine since 2011. Better known among her patients as “Dr. C.”, she performs a variety of cosmetic procedures that range from facial rejuvenation and skincare to “mommy makeovers” that might include a breast lift, reduction or augmentation, tummy tucks and vaginal rejuvenation to restore ease of ordinary processes as well as intimate well-being.

“One of the significant benefits that Dr. Cazorla brings to our practice in Beaufort is the ability to offer local breast cancer patients same-day breast reconstruction close to home,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group. “Previously, these patients would have had to come to our Bluffton facilities or travel to Charleston, but now they can receive these services from within the comfort of their communities.”

Cazorla will also offer injectable treatments, including Botox and fillers, and will provide a surgeon’s holistic perspective in administering these procedures.

“I am an artist at heart, so I use my eye for aesthetic to provide pleasing natural results that augment my patients’ natural beauty and help them achieve their best selves,” said Cazorla. “My vision is to be able to offer comprehensive women’s care and provide an aesthetic experience that allows me to address each of my patients’ personal goals.”

“A plastic surgeon understands the muscles of the face and will know how to refresh patients so they don’t look overdone,” she said. “Before any potential procedure, we talk with patients to come to an understanding of their objectives so that we can develop a comprehensive plan that aligns their goals with mine.” Her goal is ultimately to help her patients attain confidence and empowerment.

Cazorla is originally from New York City, where she began training as a surgeon. She completed a residency program at Texas Tech Health Science Center, Department of Surgery, in Lubbock, Texas. She then completed her plastic surgery fellowship at the University of Virginia Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Since moving to South Carolina, Cazorla has become affiliated with Hilton Head Hospital, Beaufort Memorial Hospital and Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Center. She is a candidate member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and an associate fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Cazorla speaks three languages; Spanish and Portuguese in addition to English. In her free time, she enjoys drawing and painting as well as interior design.

“I am honored to be a part of Pinnacle Plastic Surgery and to serve this beautiful community, which has quickly become my home,” Cazorla said. “I want each of our patients in turn to feel at home with us here at Pinnacle.”

Cazorla is excited to become involved in her new community, and is teaming up with Emma Scott Pack Photography to host a “Girls Night Out” on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at Circa 1810 Salon in Port Royal, South Carolina. Attendees will enjoy an informational evening with a wine bar, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes. To register, visit the event Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1031762580536760/ or call 843-815-6699. The first 50 women to register will receive a complementary swag bag.

The Second Annual Royal Flush Casino Night Announced for Feb. 27 Will Benefit the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity

By | Local NewsWIRE

(SAVANNAH, GA) Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah will present its Second Annual Royal Flush Casino Night on Thursday, Feb. 27, benefiting the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity.

The casino-themed party will take place at the Savannah Station, 601 Cohen St., and will feature heavy hors-d’oeuvres, an open bar, live music by the Mainstreet Dance Band and complimentary casino games including Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Texas Hold’em and Wheel of Fortune. Individual tickets for the event are $60; tickets for couples are $90. The tables will open promptly at 7 p.m.

Each guest will receive $15,000 in “funny-money” chips when they arrive. Additional chips may be purchased throughout the evening as guests will be able to put their chips towards raffle tickets for a drawing to win prizes worth more than $15,000, including $2,000 in cash. The greater a guest’s winnings, the more tickets they may contribute to the drawings.

The goal of the fundraiser is to encourage guests to build up their winnings and go “all in” to support our local Habitat for Humanity. Last year’s event enabled Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah to donate over $7,500 to the charity of choice. Sponsorships are limited but still available. Please contact Shantina Waldburg at swaldburg@rotosavannah.com.

“When we work alongside Habitat to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope, we put God’s love into action,” said Sherry Daniel, owner of Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah. “We share Habitat for Humanity’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live and are thrilled to be able to realize a partnership through this event. We encourage everyone to come out and have some fun with the knowledge that your exciting night out will truly impact someone’s life.”

Since 1983, Habitat for Humanity has provided homes for 151 Chatham County families. The organization plans to raise over $400,000 in private donations this year which, when added to other funding it secures as well as its revolving loan fund, will result in the construction of another Habitat 7 houses in 2020.

“Residents of Chatham County really know the value of homes in bringing us together as a community,” said Brett Lundy, board president of the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity. “We are so grateful that Roto-Rooter is helping to lead the way as we build up the foundations of our community from inside the home, and how fitting a partnership.”

Enmarket Introduces New Rewards and Payment Program

By | Local NewsWIRE

Enmarket Introduces New Rewards and Payment Program

(SAVANNAH, GA) The growing Savannah-based Enmarket convenience store chain continues to embrace cutting-edge technology as it rolls out a new customer rewards program called Enjoy Rewards.

Enmarket’s Enjoy Rewards will enable customers to earn fuel discounts by buying gas or diesel fuel as well as food and other merchandise inside the store. Those discounts can amount to as much as $2 off per gallon on fuel purchases.

“This rewards program provides significant savings for our customers and also maximizes convenience,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket, the 49th largest convenience store chain in the country. “Participants will be able to earn and redeem rewards at any of our 125 stores.”

Other features of the program include a coffee club, frozen beverage club and roller grill club, each of which awards a customer a free item after six purchases, plus a free annual birthday reward.

Enjoy Rewards also offers registration rewards such as a one-time 10-cents-a-gallon discount and five free fountain drinks or coffees. Customers may pick up a card at any Enmarket location and can register the card online or on the Enmarket Enjoy Rewards mobile app to start redeeming their fuel discounts. From there, Enmarket customers have the option to either use the physical card or enter their phone number at checkout to access their accounts and rewards.

In addition to providing access to the rewards program, the card can be activated as a method of payment, called enPay. When customers pay for their fuel with enPay, they earn 10 cents off each gallon purchased in that transaction. The enPay card allows customers to make transactions using a secure PIN after linking the card directly to their checking account.

The software that powers the rewards program was developed by Paytronix, while the payment platform is delivered by Zipline.

“We strategically chose two leaders in their respective fields as our partners for this initiative,” continued Giesick. “Paytronix is the industry leader in its category and has the most experience of any company on the market—they truly understand how to use their deep intelligence to drive individual action. In fact, both companies have proven that they understand how to incentivize customers in a meaningful way through offers that are relevant to each individual. We’re building an ecosystem that allows for future integrations that will be seamless to our customers and make the Enmarket shopping experience second to none in the industry.”

This rewards program signals Enmarket’s commitment to its reputation as a technology-driven company designed to make customer experiences faster and more convenient. Last year, the chain became one of the first convenience store chains in the U.S. to introduce new mobile payment technology in the form of a self-checkout service that allows customer to skip register lines and pay for purchases instantly via Enmarket’s smartphone app.

ABOUT ENMARKET
Enmarket is Savannah’s largest convenience store chain, employing more than 1,300 people and operating 125 convenience stores, 14 quick-serve restaurants, and a fast casual restaurant as the 49th largest convenience store operator in the country.
