Nonprofits Partner to Fund Sensory Park Area

By Jackie Holfelder

 On April 17, Kiwanis Club of Stuart and March for Maddie partnered to raise funds for a Sensory Sensitive Garden Play Area at Kiwanis Youth Park in downtown Stuart. The play area will be named Maddie’s Garden

 At the end of the evening, Park After Dark had raised more than $71,000 for Maddie’s Garden.

 March for Maddie was established by Jeff and Malia Schramm in 2013 after their two-1/2-year-old daughter, Maddie, passed away from birth defects.

 The nonprofit has held annual fundraising walks since its earliest beginnings, but this year collaborated with Kiwanis Club of Stuart to provide underwriting for the Sensory Sensitive Garden, which is a play area geared towards children with Autism or other sensory issues.

 Chef’s Table catered the adult dinner party, G&A Bartending provided the full bar, 48 local artists and businesses donated to auctions and raffles, and East Coast Encore provided custom lighting. Live music by Zach Jones from the Gravel Kings added to the festivities.

Any funds left after Maddie’s Garden is completed, will go towards renovation of the rest of Kiwanis Youth Park.

 For more information, visit kiwanisclubofstuart.org. Visit https://secure.qgiv.com/for/paraftdar to donate to Maddie’s Garden.
