When FFA student, Dylan Fontenot held his movie-making birthday party with us, he asked for donations rather than presents. He saved enough money to buy a whole new portable greenscreen for the partnership program between Florida Hospital and Florida Film Academy! Each month, an FFA team spend a morning with the child patients at Florida Hospital - teaching them to film their own imaginative pieces in front of a greenscreen and create a scene of their dreams.
Amanda Maggard - Administrator of Florida Hospital Winter Garden and Wendy Sullivan - Assistant Director of Program Management and Network Development - received the new greenscreen from Dylan shortly after his party. Moved by his generosity, they gave him a superhero cape and gift basket!
We are immensely proud of Dylan - both as a talented student and a selfless young man. He has been donating to charities and good causes instead of receiving birthday gifts since he was three.
