Baby Gator event raises funds for Newell Center playground renovation

Former UF first lady and fundraiser co-host, Chris Machen

The 4th Annual Baby Gator Building the Love fundraiser was held Feb. 6 at the University House.  Chris Machen and Danette Good hosted an evening of great food, fine wine and a wide array of silent and live auctions items.

The event raised enough funds to enable renovation of the Baby Gator at Newell center’s playground, which will provide better play activities for toddlers. Proceeds from the fundraiser will also enable the purchase of more playground equipment for the Baby Gator at Diamond Village playground.  The kindness and generosity of the UF and Gainesville communities is greatly appreciated.
