Education & Event Pavilion Sponsorship

Thomas R. Schidel Education & Event Pavilion

Construction is underway for the Thomas R. Schidel Education & Event Pavilion that will be the centerpiece of the ELC's multimillion-dollar master plan.  The projected grand opening will be the end of the calendar year 2021.

This impressive first piece of the master plan will be 2,500 square feet and will accommodate table seating for 120 people, or chair seating for 250 on stage, making it a perfect place for community and corporate events.  The pavilion will also have two family restrooms and a multi-purpose prep kitchen.

For concerts and large events, the 9,000 square foot grassy oval in front of the Pavilion can hold over 1,000 people.  This structure will use green principles and promote sustainability, from construction to completion.

For more information on naming opportunities around the pavilion please contact give@discoverelc.org or call 772-589-5050 ex. 113.
