Building The Love Donors

 The 3rd annual fundraiser was another success! Over $15,000 was raised for playground improvements. Thanks to the generosity of Baby Gator families, and the UF and Gainesville community, the Lake Alice preschool playground will be completed this year.


Our sincerest appreciation to the business and individuals who donated on behalf of Baby Gator Childhood Development Centers!
