Deering Estate "Pays It Forward" to help give back to first responders and healthcare heroes

MIAMI ( May 11, 2020 )

The Deering Estate and Deering Estate Foundation would like to extend their gratitude and thank all the first responders and healthcare professionals who are tirelessly working to serve our community's health needs. The Pay It Forward initiative is a unique way of gifting the brave first responders and healthcare professionals with a visit to Deering Estate to enjoy a relaxing day by the bay. 

Through this initiative, for every general admission ticket to the Deering Estate that is purchased/donated online, Deering Estate will match – up to 5,000 tickets, one-for-one — which will allow Deering Estate to gift up to 10,000 tickets in total. Deering Estate will work with community leaders to deliver and distribute these gift passes to our community's first responders and health care workers. Ticket distribution will begin once Deering Estate fully re-opens to the public.

For information on how to help give back to our heroes, please visit the Deering Estate website. We thank you for your support!
