2014 Flip Flops on the Rooftop Co-Sponsored by Steve Tsingas

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- "Leave your high heels at home" was the motto on Friday, May 9, 2014, when the Friends Board of Jack & Jill hosted the 2014 Flip Flops on the Rooftop party at Westin Beach Resort Fort Lauderdale. The celebrations kicked off at 6:30 pm with great food and dancing on the hotel's rooftop, which grants magical views of the Fort Lauderdale Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway. The casual event offered a tropical atmosphere deluxe, with original beach décor, summery cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. The proceeds of the soiree under the stars went straight to the Jack & Jill Children's Center programs and will benefit children and families in need. The event was supported by a number of private and corporate sponsors, many of them local organizations such as the Fort Lauderdale-based company City Power Marketing.

Steve Tsingas, owner and CEO of City Power Marketing, attended the party with his wife Lauren. While they enjoyed the live entertainment by Weedline and performances by the Aloha Islanders, as well as live auctions and a pot gold raffle, he agrees with Maria Meyer, director of development at Jack & Jill Children's center, that the important thing is to support the cause. Meyer was happy about the many sponsors the organization found for the event: "Fundraisers such as our madly entertaining 'Flip Flops on the Rooftop' enable us to continue improving the lives of our center's children and parents."

Jack & Jill Children's Center was founded by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale in 1942. Coming from a childhood full of struggle and financial hardships himself, Steve Tsingas fully supports the center's goals of providing childcare for children of low-income families in Broward County. Over the last 70 years, more than 13,000 kids received over one million hours of quality, nationally accredited early childhood education. At the same time, Jack & Jill provides necessary tools, training and resources to foster the ability of parents to look after their children's health, growth and development. Steve, who despite the loving support of his family had to work hard to finance his education, which eventually brought him a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering, followed by a Professional Engineer license and an MBA, knows how crucial a solid academic background can be in order to achieve your goals in life.

Today, Steve Tsingas has achieved many of those goals. After gaining experience in the power trading business by working as field engineer for NETZSCH Inc. and as a field engineer for Atlantic City Electric Company in New Jersey, he launched his own company, City Power Marketing LLC, in 2005. Thanks to his experience as a licensed professional engineer and his drive for profitability, Steve consistently guarantees an outstanding performance for his power trading company. Originally from Greece, Steve grew up in Norristown, PA. He travelled across the United States quite a bit to complete his studies as well as to fulfill his duties as field engineer, before settling in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he still lives with his wife and two small children. Steve has become a valuable member of the community of Fort Lauderdale and is always ready to help those who are less fortunate than him.
