Brandon doesn’t have an official mayor. In fact, it’s an unincorporated area of Hillsborough County. But each summer, local philanthropists vie for the chance to be Brandon’s Honorary Mayor. This year, FishHawk Ranch resident and local realtor, George Shea, is in the running. The Honorary Mayor’s race started 60 years ago by the Community Roundtable as a way to raise funds for local non-profit organizations.
Today, Julie Kenny and her staff at Julestarz Academy share their love of performing for a new generation of FishHawk Ranch residents. The studio, which offers children’s classes in dance, music and theater, has been a part of the FishHawk Ranch community for more than 10 years.
FishHawk Ranch is gearing up for another Concert for a Cause season. This year all donations will benefit local non-profit organization Seeds of Hope, and will also have a funds matching for Newsome High School Marching Band’s March to Macy.
