The Pinecrest Garden's commemorative tribute gift program is a wonderful way to honor family and friends throughout the year. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and engagements, graduations, Mother's Day and Father's Day—or as an expression of sympathy.
You may give a commemorative tribute gift in one of three ways: The Giving Tree, Benches or Tree Donations. For further information on each of these programs call 305-669-6990 and speak with Pinecrest Gardens Director, Alana Perez.
The Giving Tree
The Gardens Giving Tree is a three dimensional sculpted tree by Chilean artist Jose Pablo Ravinet. Leave a lasting impression that will add beauty and dimension to the Gardens. The small engraved leaves are $250 and the large engraved leaves are $500. A personalized acknowledgment of your tribute gift will be sent to the recipient of your choice, without reference to the size of the gift, following receipt of your donation.
To order your leaf, please contact Pinecrest Gardens at 305.669.6990. The purchase of the leaf is through the Community Foundation of Pinecrest (a 501(c)3 Non-Profit) benefiting cultural arts and education programming at Pinecrest Gardens. The purchase is tax deductible to the extent determined by your tax advisor.
Bench locations have been pre-identified on a map. A 1"x2" plaque inscribed with a dedication of the donor's choice are placed on the lower right corner of the bench. Benches are priced as follows:
- Standard or curved plain benches: $1,000
- Mosaic benches: $2,500
- Ceramic art benches (to replace existing plain benches) $5,000
The tree program would allow for the procurement of special trees as recommended by staff selected to enhance the look and/or botanical plan of Pinecrest Gardens. Tree pricing would depend on the maturity, size and variety. Prices are available upon request. A stainless steel tree tag approximately 1"x2" making the dedication will be inscribed with the words of the donor's choice and it will remain tagged for the life of the tree.
