$10,000 donation goes to local non-profit dedicated to building places where playing is fun for everyone.

[start[FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. - Understanding that having areas to enjoy outdoor activities fosters healthy lifestyles for children and adults, Agency Owner of Brightway, The Fernandina Beach Agency, Michael Tarzia, recently presented a $5,000 check to 8 Flags Playscapes, Inc.
