ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – Mem­bers of the Lemon Bay Gar­den Club cel­e­brated the com­ple­tion of dri­ve­way repairs with a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony at the Club­house, 480 Yale St. Olde Englewood.

Dri­ve­way improve­ments were funded, in part, with a $1,000 grant pro­vided by the Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion of Sara­sota County, Inc. from the Joseph and Sylvia Bloom Unre­stricted Fund.

Lemon Bay Gar­den Club (LBGC) was able to apply for an Imme­di­ate Impact Grant because our orga­ni­za­tion has a Giv­ing Part­ner Pro­file. The Giv­ing Part­ner is a valu­able tool for fun­ders who use it to make informed deci­sions on how they award grants.

This grant was in addi­tion to the club’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in last years Giv­ing Part­ner Chal­lenge that pro­vided LBGC with a $3,300 in unre­stricted support.

LBGC will par­tic­i­pate in the 2016 Giv­ing Part­ner Chal­lenge from noon Sept. 20 through noon Sept. 21. This year, The Pat­ter­son Foun­da­tion will match all repeat donors 1 to 1 up to $100 and new donors 2 to 1 up to $100. Com­mu­nity sup­port is needed to main­tain the club­house and gar­dens, to con­tinue edu­ca­tional and civic pro­grams, pro­vide col­lege schol­ar­ships and schol­ar­ships for chil­dren to attend Wekiva Youth Camp. For more infor­ma­tion con­tact Kathy Cevoli @ 941−460−0408.
