FORT MYERS, Fla. (Jan. 31, 2012) -- Florida Gulf Bank has launched a social media campaign on Facebook to benefit United Way.

“Charitable giving is a priority here at Florida Gulf Bank,” said Bill Valenti, president and CEO. “With social media, our friends in the community can be directly involved in how much the bank gives back.”
