Chris Havlicek Charity Board Position – Everglades Foundation:
Chris Havlicek understands that the Everglades are a vital part of not only South Florida, but the entire state in which he lives. Chris lives in Palm Beach, Florida with his wife and children and that is why the Everglades Foundation is one of the causes he fights for and helps raise money as one of the dedicated board members of the foundation. The Everglades is a river that runs through most of the state and provides drinking water for the state. It is a natural habitat for wildlife and plants that are vital to the environment. Raising money for the foundation supports their vision, which is restoring the Everglades and the surrounding estuaries to a natural state that allows clean water to flow, while providing a reliable water supply for the people of Florida.
