An upcoming Miami Valley Hospital South Gala is scheduled for March 10, 2012 to partially fund the Fullmer's-designed Garden of Hope at the hospital.
Here's an excerpt from the upcoming Gala program with a description of the Garden, designed by Fullmer's Landscaping:
"Proceeds from tonight’s gala will benefit a portion of the design, construction and planting of the Garden of Hope, and widening and enhancements to the wooded walking paths on campus. Located between the bed tower and cancer center, the layout for the distinctive walkways and plantings for the Garden of Hope flow from the new building’s design. Several trellises, supported by steel surrounded in decorative glass, will support draping plants providing shade for benches below. The benches, trellises and other amenities offer various levels of additional support for donors. While the Garden of Hope will provide a serene area for healing and comfort, the cost was not able to be included in the project budget. Thank you for helping to make the Garden of Hope a reality for patients and families for years to come."
