Merrick Society Receptions
Our annual Merrick Society Reception is the Coral Gables Community Foundation’s way of showing appreciation for those who not only care about making a difference in Coral Gables, but who also continue to uphold the vision and legacy of George Merrick himself.
This event is intended for current and prospective Merrick Society members. The Foundation honors its most generous donors and offers information about the Society to those looking to contribute more substantial donations to their community.
At the inaugural Merrick Society Reception on June 6, 2013, the Foundation recognized Robert J. “Bob” and Marian Fewell as the first lifetime members of the Merrick Society for their contribution of $100,000.
The 2017 Merrick Society Reception was held at the beautiful h ome of Claudine Claus on May 25, 2017.
