“As a longtime member of The Sertoma Club of Greater Sarasota, I have personally seen the incredible difference this organization has made in the lives of countless children,” said Massey. “I was honored to assist them in this milestone occasion and am excited to see the work of rockstars like child therapist Pamela Little Plank benefit children struggling with speech issues for years to come.”
