MANSFIELD, OH - Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield held its annual Charles Kelley King Christmas Party to launch the active phase of its capital campaign project.

Kingwood Administrative Board of Directors Chair David Carto announced the recognition of gifts, grants, and pledges received to-date, following a quiet campaign that began early this year

He says more than $7.1-million has been raised thus far.

The campaign includes a $3-million seed gift from Richard Taylor and the Taylor family, a $1.5-million commitment from the Charles Kelley King Trust, a $1-million grant from the Richland County Foundation and 100 percent participation with personal gifts from board members, campaign committee volunteers, and Kingwood staff.

Additional major gifts were given by the Gorman Family Foundation, John Fernyak and the Fernyak Family, the John and Pearl Conard Foundation and the Hire Family Foundation.

A final goal of $8.5-million is expected to be reached in the spring of next year to build a new visitor center and entrance to the Kingwood gardens, along with an environmentally-conscious parking lot.
