South Florida

Sugar manufacturer Florida Crystals recently hosted 40 South Florida Section members and guests for an informative, pleasurable Saturday tour of a refinery, mill, and cane fields, topped off with a delicious Cuban lunch in the guesthouse.

The event was one of the Section’s most successful. Members learned a tremendous amount about one of Florida’s most important industries and raised more than $400 for a local charity that cares for children of agricultural workers. The Section would like to send its heartfelt thanks to the whole team at Florida Crystals.
