Donate a Gift/Memorial Brick

Purchasing a gift or memorial brick is a great way for people to honor or remember people or pets that are important to them. Each brick will be capable of three lines of text holding 21 characters per line for you to honor your loved one. This is a great opportunity for people to leave a lasting legacy while creating a permanent tribute to those who have contributed most to your life. Sponsorship levels begin with gift bricks for a donation of $100 each. For information on how you can be a brick while honoring an important person or pet in your life, please contact Laura Chaikin at 863-324-5227 or email
