SWFL Children’s Charities continued its giving ways by recently presenting hospital leaders with the final installment of a $10 million pledge to help build the new Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. The group then added a new twist – a $1.2 million matching challenge to the community.
“SWFL Children’s Charities is pleased to issue this challenge to everyone here in Southwest Florida,” said organization president Elaine Hawkins as the check presentation was made. “From May 1 through July 31, we will match each and every dollar donated to the Golisano Children’s Hospital capital campaign, up to a total of $1.2 million.”
SWFL Children’s Charities sponsors the annual Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest each year, donating proceeds to local charities with the lion’s share directed to Golisano Children’s Hospital.
