$25,000 Challenge Grant

By Bonnet House Blog No Comments

We are so excited to announce this wonderful opportunity for Bonnet House. The Salah Foundation has most generously awarded Bonnet House a $25,000 Challenge Grant to complete our hurricane recovery efforts by refurbishing the fence along A1A and repairing the Boat House.

The contract for the fence is $45,000 and we also learned recently that the boathouse will cost $14,600 to repair.   It has taken quite a bit of time to get to this point post Hurricane Irma, and we have to get these items fixed now more than ever for safety and security reasons!

We are honored that the Salah Foundation has graciously offered this grant to Bonnet House, but we need your help!  The Salah Foundation will match dollar for dollar up to $25,000, thus making the funds go twice as far.  Please help Bonnet House raise its goal and show the Salah Foundation your gratitude by making a donation today.

Our Gift Shop features Charles Albert jewelry, which is showcased only at high-end retailers because of their fine sterling silver pieces.

Our Gift Shop is proud to also share our space with specialty items from SPI, as well as a wide array of other household and personal items that are sure to compliment your home with elegance and style.

If it’s history that interests you, our Gift Shop has an expansive selection of books capturing the fascinating history and culture of Fort Lauderdale.

For an in-depth history of Bonnet House specifically, we have published a new hardcover book, “Bonnet House: A Legacy of Artistry and Elegance.” This new coffee table-book highlights the historic home and the artistic legacy of Frederic and Evelyn Bartlett. The book traces the history of the property, and explores and depicts the decorative embellishments utilized by the Bartletts to create a truly unique home. Click here to view some sample pages.
