Agurcia’s name was entered into a 2016 MINI Countryman giveaway with thousands of other entries from more than 200 South Florida companies who give to United Way of Broward County. Throughout the year, Broward County residents who donated a minimum of $260 (only $5 per week) to United Way of Broward County were entered into a drawing of over 10,000 entrants. Agurcia, who works in the dairy department at the Publix Super Markets distribution center in Deerfield Beach, has consistently donated to United Way of Broward County for the past five years.
