Dedicated Businesswoman Gears Up For Top Chamber Role

By Suzy Wiesenhart

Donna Lee Fore’s new role of incoming president of the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce will only be one of many things that she does in the community. Fore wears many hats as co-owner of P.F. Autoglass, a Mary Kay consultant, chairperson for the chamber annual dinner, and vice president of the Riverview Women’s Club.

Both she and her husband Pat are from Tampa and opened P.F. Autoglass in 1994 in Tampa, a complete mobile auto glass service.  Pat has over 15 years’ experience and Donna spends time networking and talking to insurance companies ensuring all customers are satisfied.

After developing Rosacea, years ago, Fore found that Mary Kay offered the best produce for her skin. She liked it so much; she became an independent Mary Kay consultant and is continuing to grow her business.  Fore joked, “I can fix the cracks in your windshield or your face.  Seriously, I like to be in front of women so I can help them.”

The Fore’s have three boys (including twins) and a daughter. Their nine grandchildren also keep them busy.

As incoming president of the Chamber, one of Fore’s goals is to highlight members who give “behind the scenes”; those companies who give so much to the community, but are rarely recognized. She also wants to stress shopping local in the Riverview community and help small businesses grow in spite of the economy.  She said, “I want to establish a strong economic development committee to oversee the changes in Riverview”.
