ainesville. "Growing up the child of two doctors, I understand the important role medical care plays in a community. The more I hear about this Project, and what it will bring to Gainesville, the more excited I am by it," said Silverstein, who became Google
's first employee in 1998 and is now its Director of Technology. "Giving this gift to the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation
will help advance its mission of creating a full-service Children's Hospital in partnership with Shands at UF, while ensuring the highest quality care for children in North Central Florida and beyond." Mr. Silverstein proposed this grant through his donor advised fund at Schwab Charitable Fund.
"This transformative gift coupled with all the charitable donations that have been made to date have brought us that much closer to achieving our mission while continuing to improve patient safety," said founder Horst Ferrero. "With our new executive director, Deborah Peeples, our upcoming annual fundraiser, Noche de Gala, and this significant grant, we have gained the momentum, leadership and resources necessary to move this initiative to the next level," said founder Horst Ferrero.
The Foundation's goal is to transform today's excellent pediatric care into the safest and most outstanding care provided within the warm environment of a dedicated children's hospital. Luisa Ferrero stressed that only with the continued philanthropic support of the broader community will the Foundation's goals be realized. "Every single dollar counts," said Ferrero. "Our children deserve the dedicated care only a children's hospital can offer."
