Associates at Publix Super Markets ensure their customers’ shopping experience is
always a pleasure. And for two weeks in June, 130 stores in Central Florida dedicated
themselves to raising funds and awareness for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer.

Publix associates and customers rallied around Orlando Health Arnold Palmer
in their 27th annual fundraising campaign, raising $528,519 to support pediatric
programs and services for our local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital.

“The generous support of Publix customers and associates is vital to our mission,
and we are extremely grateful for their 27 years of commitment,” said John Bozard,
president, Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation. “Through our partnership, we have been able to renovate
and expand pediatric units and services, and purchase medical equipment that has helped us continue to give every
hospitalized child comfort, hope and healing every day of the year. We commend Publix on their extraordinary efforts
and thank them for the positive impact they are having on kids and families in our community.”


In May, Costco participated in a month-long Miracle Balloon campaign, inviting
members to make a donation in support of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer.
Throughout the four Costco warehouses in Central Florida, you could hear
associates ringing cow bells in celebration of each donation made, whether at the
register or through some of their exciting in-store events and initiatives. The hard
work, dedication and commitment of Costco associates resulted in their most
successful year ever, raising more than $128,000. Following the campaign, the
company made an additional corporate contribution on top of the local fundraising,
bringing the company’s total support of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer to nearly
$152,000 in 2018. We are grateful to our Costco partners, and all of the members
who made this year’s campaign a success.


On Saturday, July 28th, supporters of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer came together
to take a literal and figurative stand for kids during the third annual Florida Miracle,
Central Florida’s Dance Marathon.
Organized by an all-volunteer committee, the event raised more than $30,000
through community partnerships, special events and peer-to-peer fundraising from
participants. Made up of mostly young professionals, this group and its supporters
are giving our patient families a sense of hope, knowing they have a community of
advocates behind them, supporting them every day, fighting their fight alongside them.

This September, Walmart & Sam’s Club locations throughout Orange, Osceola,
Seminole, Brevard, Volusia and Flagler counties are fundraising for Orlando Health
Arnold Palmer.
Earlier this year, Walmart presented Orlando Health Arnold Palmer with a check
for more than $520,000 raised last year through customer and member donations as
part of their annual CMN Hospitals fundraising campaign. The check presentation
was made during a playroom dedication ceremony where Walmart & Sam’s Club
associates from the 77 Central Florida locations that support Orlando Health
Arnold Palmer donated toys, games, gift cards and other items from the hospital’s
wish list to help “stock the playroom” for the kids.
“Orlando Health Arnold Palmer has played a special role in so many children’s lives here in Orlando,” said Elise
Vasquez-Warner, vice president and regional general manager for Walmart in Central Florida. “Our associates truly
value their involvement in the great work accomplished at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer. It’s through their efforts and
the generosity of our customers and members that together we’re all making a difference in the lives of so many families
across the region.”


“One dollar at a time” is the mantra of fundraising for our CMN Hospitals’ partners.
This May, Wawa demonstrated the incredible impact of giving a little to help a lot
by asking their customers to donate their spare change, or make a donation at the
register to support Orlando Health Arnold Palmer. In just over one month’s time, Wawa locations throughout
Central Florida raised more than $118,000 – nearly double the previous year’s efforts!


Who doesn’t love playing games? Whether a video, board or card game, playing
games has a way of uniting family and friends. Through Extra Life, a CMN
Hospitals’ initiative, gaming has also brought together a community of supporters who are dedicated to raising funds
and awareness for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer.
Participants - commonly referred to as “Extra Lifers”- sign up and pledge to play any kind of game for 24-hours, on
any day that works for them. Some do it all at once, and others game one hour at a time – making a huge difference
for the kids no matter how they take on the 24-hour marathon. Extra Lifers raise money year-round and then come
together for an international day of play every fall to celebrate their grand total together — held on November 3rd
this year. To learn more or get involved, visit


Businesses across Central Florida are committed to giving back to Orlando Health Arnold Palmer. This fall, you may
