Recognizing women of dignity, strength and perseverance. 

Join United Way of Broward County's Women United for the 9th Annual Magnolia Luncheon as we celebrate and recognize our two honorees:

 

 

Cathy Donnelly - Woman of Inspiration

Cathy Donnelly

Cathy Donnelly is the Director of Community Relations for Castle Group.  She moved to Florida in 1996 from Ottawa, Canada to found the Castle Group with her husband, James.  

In 2015 Cathy was appointed by Governor Rick Scott to sit on the Board of the Children’s Services Council of Broward County. Today Cathy is sitting as Chair of this Board.

Cathy pioneered the K.I.S.S. program (Keep It Simple Service Program) for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County in August 2004 in one Davie club.  Today, K.I.S.S. serves a free, nutritious snack and free, hot suppers each school day in all 12 Broward County Clubs!  Cathy served as Chair in 2012/2013 and is proud to hold emeritus status with the organization today.  In 2018 she was inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame for the creation of the K.I.S.S. program which has served 4.2 million healthy snacks and hot meals since 2011.

As well as serving on the Children’s Service Council Cathy is also an active member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County Legacy Society and the United Way Tocqueville Society. She is a benefactor for the Preforming Arts Center of Broward and feeds her passion for the arts by also sitting on the Cultural Arts Affairs Committee of the Broward Workshop and the Broward Cultural Division – Public Art & Design Committee.

In 2010 CastleCares® was established as the philanthropic arm of the Castle Group. CastleCares® mission is to serve children and families in need throughout the state of Florida. Cathy oversees the various opportunities for staff members to volunteer and support the nonprofit community and manages the annual giving budget on behalf of the company.  In 2015 she established Castle’s Day of Caring, a State-wide company event that supports various charities all over the State of Florida.

Born in Liverpool, England, Cathy moved to Canada with her family at age 6 where she resided in St. Johns, Newfoundland and Ottawa, Ontario.  While living in Canada she owned and operated a Travel Agency Franchise in Ottawa for 6 years.  In 1992 she founded a local chapter of IODE (Independent Order Daughters of the Empire) in Ottawa which aided the underserved community in Northern Canada.

Cathy and James were high school sweethearts and have been married for 33 years. They reside in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and have three wonderful adult sons, Jordan, Chase and Brock.  In her spare time Cathy enjoys art, music, hiking, skiing, travel, reading, spending time with family and friends and R & R in Mont Tremblant, Quebec!
