The Club at Eaglebrooke
Join us for the Seasons of Service luncheon and be inspired by three insightful men – Deric Feacher, Haines City Deputy City Manager; Hollis Hooks, Senior Vice President, Morgan Stanley; and Paul Noris, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer & President, Bank of Central Florida, as they share the extraordinary lessons they have learned from the important women in their lives. These three men wanted to take the time to celebrate the women who have had a profound influence on them from birth and beyond. The trio recognizes the qualities of women that make them nurturing souls, as well as the ability to empower those around them, women and men alike.
