The fundraising auction features experiences such as tickets to spring training games at Jet Blue Stadium and CenturyLink Sports Complex-Hammond Stadium. Other auction items include “staycations” donated by Marriott and Hampton Inn, an authentic Everglades adventure experience, and more.
This is the Foundation’s fifth annual spring fundraiser. Fundraising events are currently dedicated to financing the next phase of the Children’s Garden at Lakes Park. The Foundation is preparing to enter the design and planning stage of Phase II of the Children’s Garden – the Pollination Station. Funding for Phase I was raised over the course of 2+ years, through events such as Scarecrows in the Park, auctions, general donations, and brick sales.
