Pinecrest Gardens has announced the winner of its “Name the Concession Tower” contest.
During the month of September, Pinecrest Gardens launched a contest in search of the best name for the newly renovated concession tower. After sorting through more than 100 entries a short list was created by the Pinecrest Gardens staff and sent over to the Village of Pinecrest municipal center for final selection.
“I-Guana Bite,” submitted by Charlinne Garcia’s fifth grade class at Pinecrest Elementary, will be the name of the newly renovated concession tower. The concession tower overlooks Swan Lake where each year hundreds of iguanas call home at Pinecrest Gardens, so the name fits perfectly.
Manny Diaz, student representative, on behalf of Ms. Garcia’s class submitted the name in hopes of surprising her.
Ms. Garcia will receive a Sprout Eco Friendly Watch (retail value $30), and Manny will receive a $20 concession tower gift certificate. A sign will be placed at the concession tower recognizing Garcia and her class along with the new concession name.
Pinecrest Gardens, a lush botanical garden offering access to spectacular flora and fauna year round, is located at 11000 Red Rd. (SW 57th Avenue) in Pinecrest. For more information visit online at www.pinecrest-fl.gov or call 305-669-6990.
