Gulfstream Park donated more than 500 pre-packaged hot meals Tuesday to staff members at nearby Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. Gulfstream Chef Giovanni Arias, Executive Sous Chef Juan Magana and the entire Food & Beverage staff prepared the meals before delivering them to the Hollywod, FL hospital, with which Gulfstream has had a long partnership, including donations and yearly visits to patients by jockeys and trainers.
“[Tuesday] was a special day at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. We received a delicious lunch that was specially made just for us. We are grateful to our community members who support us and take care of our JDCH healthcare heroes,” said Elisa Jones, Director of Community Engagement, Patient and Family Centered Care, at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. “The staff was so happy and felt so special to have a gourmet hot meal for lunch.”
Gulfstream's Nikki Bernstein, Director, Sponsorships & Community Relations, added: “We feel extremely fortunate to express our thanks to the first responders at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital by delivering these healthy meals. We're grateful to these heroes for everything they do.”
