50th Anniversary Garden Party to benefit The Neighborhood Center of South Lake

The Neighborhood Center of South Lake was founded in 1972 and has been in continuous operation since that time feeding 1350 families (5000 individuals) each month. The Center’s growth includes over 100 active, dedicated volunteers who allow us to keep the costs of running the Center with a small part-time staff as low as possible.

We provide support to low-income families and individuals in South Lake County – Mascotte, Groveland, Clermont, Minneola, Montverde, and points in between and south to the county line.

We offer several kinds of assistance:

  • Food
  • Medical support in conjunction with the South Lake Community Health Center
  • Educational/Training opportunities
  • Assistance in applying for food stamps, Medicaid and Emergency Assistance

Date: Saturday, October 8, 2022, 4 – 7 p.m.
Where: The Mission Inn Resort & Club, 10400 CR 48, Howey in the Hills


Mix and Mingle at The Neighborhood Center’s first Garden Party ~ featuring a special tribute to our Founders, entertainment, auction, delicious hors d’oeuvres and beverages and WESH Anchor / Reporter Jim Payne as our Master of Ceremonies.
