WABA and Dr. Nate Featured in the new Westchase Patch!

At Bright Eyes Family Vision Care, we’re excited always about a new development in the Westchase community. This past week, Westchase Patch was launched. It is a community-specific, news and information website that provides local coverage for the Westchase community. A few of the features available through the site:

  • Keep up with news and events
  • Look at photos and videos from around town
  • Learn about local businesses
  • Participate in discussions
  • Submit your own announcements, photos, and reviews

Apart from this great new way to stay informed about our community and neighbors, we’re also excited to have Dr. Nate featured in this local business article about the Westchase Area Business Association (WABA). If you are interested in joining this group, simply visit the Facebook page here and sign up.

All the best,

Justin Schoonover, CPO

St. Pete Times Interviews Dr. B. about Westchase Business Association

I had this post ready to go a while back and then forgot to post it. It is a little late, but still relevant.

I was recently quoted in the St. Petersburg Times discussing the formation of the Westchase Area Business Association. You can see the full story here, but here is a good quote:

In 2006, Dr. Nathan Bonilla-Warford, an optometrist, opened Bright Eyes Family Vision Care in West Park Village. He struggled to connect with other business owners in the community.

Westchase is a wonderful place, but if you don’t come, you don’t know it’s here,” Bonilla-Warford said. “If we can give people a reason to come here, they’ll come back.”

Be Well!

Please welcome the Westchase Area Business Association (WABA).

Waba

It is awesome owning a Westchase business. The people are great, the neighborhood is beautiful, and the local business owners are fantastic. All the Westchase businesses I know, whether they be small, large, have a big store front or are internet/home based, work very hard and enjoy their work. That is why I am SO EXCITED about the new Westchase Area Business Association (WABA), spearheaded by Joel and Marlene Bigham, of the Computer Valet. For the first time, there is an organization built by and for Westchase businesses.

The first WABA event received a very nice write-up by Alicia McMillan in the World of Westchase. I was lucky to be able to attend this marvelous event and meet lots of new Westchase people. I was even quoted in the WOW piece:

Over 60 area businesses were represented during the evening. Dr. Nathan Bonilla-Warford of locally operated Bright Eyes Family Vision Care stated that he’d just found out about the event the night before, but was determined not to miss out. He explained, “A lot of us work really hard to grow our own Westchase businesses. I had an event at my office last month and it drew a lot of attention, but I had trouble communicating with other businesses. There’s no reason at all why we shouldn’t all be working together.” He added, “The turnout is awesome. I think that just reinforces that there’s obviously a need.”

I have been so impressed with WABA, that I have volunteered to assist with events and online marketing. Bright Eyes hosted a successful morning coffee recently at the office. There will be regular coffees and cocktail hours, as well as larger events in the future.

If you are a Westchase business owner or resident, I encourage you to check out the official WABA webpage, as well as the Facebook and Twitter page. We are looking for energetic people who want to strengthen Westchase connections.

Be Well!
