But Mallo is best known for her participation and support of many local organizations. After over 34 years in Martin County, she has left her mark!
The arts and the cats in Martin County have benefitted the most by her boundless energy and generous heart.

She has been a member, volunteer, and supporter of MartinArts since 2009 and sponsored Dinner Under the Oaks in 2021.
She was a member of Port St. Lucie Arts League for five years and is currently a member and President of the Martin Artisans Guild.

Mallo became a member of The Elliott Museum in 2019 and continues to support their efforts in the community. She also joined many of her friends by joining the Women Supporting the Arts. Like Mallo, WSA does much to support the creative community and further the arts in Martin County.
The number of non-profits Mallo’s generosity has touched and lifted is too great to list, but it cements what we all know- her passion to help her community knows no bounds.
