Christine Lance’s “giving list” is a Who’s Who of Brevard charities. Candlelighters, Bridges, the Parker Foundation, The Haven for Children, the Women’s Center, Family Promise, AMI Kids, Space Coast Early Intervention Center, Brevard Rescue Mission, Rolling Readers, Junior Achievement and Promise in Brevard are just some of the groups she has helped.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Every day after school, more than 150 children and teens pour through the doors of Neighbor Up Brevard’s DOCK center in the Booker T. Washington neighborhood of Melbourne, the city’s poorest.

At the DOCK, kids who would otherwise be all too susceptible to the dangers of the street around them receive academic help, enjoy extracurricular activities, and, most importantly, are encouraged to be their best by adults who serve as role models and mentors.

The DOCK exists in part because of Christine Lance.

“As a community leader, Christine Lance has played a critical role in supporting capital and operating needs at the DOCK,” said Neighbor Up Brevard director Lynn Brockwell-Carey.

Lance’s seemingly boundless generosity has touched the lives of many Brevard’s underserved citizens.

“Since moving to Brevard in 2003, I have become a big supporter of the community and the many wonderful charitable organizations here,” said Lance.

“My primary interest has been supporting organizations that help children at risk.”

For six years, the Indian Harbour Beach resident served as board member of the United Way of Brevard. As a member of the United Way’s Tocqueville Society, Christine donates at least $25,000 annually to this partnership for good.

EXTENSIVE ‘GIVING LIST’

Her “giving list” is a Who’s Who of Brevard charities. Candlelighters, Bridges, the Parker Foundation, The Haven for Children, the Women’s Center, Family Promise, AMI Kids, Space Coast Early Intervention Center, Brevard Rescue Mission, Rolling Readers, Junior Achievement and Promise in Brevard are just some of the groups she has helped.

As a member of Brevard Zoo’s Jaguar Society, Christine in 2017 hosted an event for Hubbs Sea World to raise awareness of the plight of the Indian River Lagoon. She is ever the gracious hostess who often opens her home to fundraisers.

As chair of events for Health First Foundation, she has helped orchestrate fundraisers that help to fund critically needed facility improvements for the health care system.

For Project Hunger and the Brevard Homeless Coalition, Christine donated funds for the provision of an immediate short-term shelter.

Florida Tech and Scott Center for Autism have also been recipients of her largesse. She even took to the dance floor to help the charities near and dear to the Sheriff’s Office through the Dancing with the Space Coast program, which she has supported both as a dancer and as a fundraiser for other dancers.

Part of the reason Lance is so involved in the community is that she hopes her actions will inspire others to follow her lead.
