The Wellington Chamber of Commerce installed its 2007-08 executive committee and board of directors at a luncheon held Wednesday at the Tavern on the Green Equestrian Club. At the luncheon, local dentist Dr. Farokh Jiveh was honored as the chamber's "Man of the Year."
"The encouragement, motivation and inspiration that I receive from my wife Jhaleh is truly unsurpassed, and I would never be able to do the things we do if it wasn't for her kindness, compassion and most importantly, support," Jiveh said.

Executive Director Michela Perillo-Green agreed. "I am honored to have the privilege to work with such an exceptional group of community leaders," she said. "Their leadership will no doubt take this chamber to new levels."

Smiles By Jiveh did the same sponsorship in 2006. This year's event was bigger and better and attended by many more people. As the pictures show, our supporters grew temendously as well!
Dr. Jiveh is a board member of MBSK My Brother's/Sister's Keeper Charitable Trust and along with its founder, Jess Santamaria, the group makes every effort that the most needy in the community is cared for through this organization.
Board members meet every month to raise money to be distributed to the families in need and those affected by catastrophic events and special and urgent needs in the Western Communities.
100% of all funds raised go directly & solely to the needy. None of the donated/raised money goes towards administrative, employees/workers for the trust. All board members are volunteers giving their own time to the trust.
In 2006 almost $85,000 was disbursed to the families in need from our area.
