A total of $3.45 million has been promised; about $860,000 is needed for first-phase con- struction to begin. Many organizations, indi- viduals and families have signed on to contribute to the center's construction since a February fundraiser drew approximately 400 residents from Bay Hill, Dr. Phillips, Celebration, Windermere, Williamsburg and other Southwest neighbor- hoods. "We have great momen- tum," says Valerie Denner, co- chair of the Building Drive. "We've received new pledges from $500 to $50,000. What's wonderful is that so many people are reaching within to make gifts that are meaningful to them based on their capacity to give." The Jewish Community Center South campus, to be located on South Apopka- Vineland Road, will include a preschool, a social center, a health club and several addi- tional amenities, as well as of- rices for the Jewish Federation and Jewish Family Services. Membership will be open to everyone.
