We are excited to welcome Cari Gelber to the FiDi Families website, as our newest FiDi Families ambassador. Cari was born and raised in the Financial District and is currently the Director of Sales for FB Hospitality Group. She leads its business development initiatives and has brought in over $10 million in revenue, during the course of her tenure at FB Hospitality Group.
She will be sharing her insights on classes, keeping us updated on the best activities to visit with your kiddos and helping us spread the FiDi Families brand throughout Lower Manhattan. She is passionate about downtown NYC and is always seeking out fun activities and events to attend with her 5 year old son. In addition to showcasing downtown events, she will also assume the role of Sales Director for our media and marketing campaigns and FiDi Events division. Over the past 4 years, Cari has gained keen insight into the needs of New York families as a contributor to the national website, Macaroni Kid, a weekly, online newsletter that covers kids and family-friendly events.
When her son was diagnosed with life-threatening peanut-based allergies, Cari started a support group for parents living in NYC with kids who had food allergies and launched NavigatingFoodAllergies.com, a website for allergy families. She has earned grants from FAACT and FARE and attended national leadership summits to help educate people on food allergy awareness.
We are excited to welcome her to the FiDi Families team and look forward to bringing more events to our families!
