Hospital Auxiliary Makes First Pledge for Community Pavilion

Posted on Monday, June 5, 2017 at 9:10 am

The pavilion will be close to the CREATION® Health Community Garden behind the hospital on Dairy Road.

Members of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ) Auxiliary recently made a pledge to the hospital’s Foundation for its CREATION® Health Community Garden Education Pavilion.

The Florida Hospital Zephyrhills (FHZ) Auxiliary has made a $20,000 pledge to support the building of the CREATION® Health Community Garden Education Pavilion. The pavilion will be built near the two-acre CREATION® Health Community Garden on Dairy Road and will be used for the education classes and events, gatherings, and perhaps even cooking classes. Members of the community will also be able to rent the pavilion for special occasions like weddings.

“We are honored to receive the support of the Auxiliary for this project,” said Carolyn Sentelik, Executive Director for FHZ’s Foundation. “We are thrilled that its members have decided to support the project and hope that their gift will inspire individuals and businesses to also pledge support.” It’s expected that the pavilion will cost approximately $150,000 to build, Sentelik added.
