Amaryllis Club

Goals and Responsibilities


What is the Amaryllis Club at Bok Tower Gardens?

The Amaryllis Club is dedicated to upholding the mission and preserving the heritage of Bok Tower Gardens through projects and support.

What does the Amaryllis Club do for Bok Tower Gardens?

Activities of club members are geared toward supporting key initiatives mutually agreed upon by Bok Tower Gardens staff and the Amaryllis Club. The club seeks to connect the people we serve to projects and activities at Bok Tower Gardens, personalize the way people engage with these projects, and cultivate long-term relationships of people and projects within the Gardens

How do I join the Amaryllis Club?

You must be a current member of Bok Tower Gardens. The Amaryllis Club membership is renewed annually in the spring of each year by completing a registration form. Each Amaryllis Club member is asked to participate in some way to achieve the project goals set forth at the beginning of each year. You can donate your time, talents or monetary gift.

Amaryllis Club Projects

Started in 2014, the club took on the project of decorating the living room and porches for the 20th Anniversary HOliday Home Tour and updated the decorations throughout the house to bring them into line with the vintage flavor of Pinewood Estate. Monetary gifts helped purchase and replace decorations and host a thank-you party. Monetary funds were used toward the purchase of goods and services associated with club projects. Unspent funds rolled over into the following year’s budget.

Last year, the club expanded their decorating scope to include the entry hall & landing, morning room, hallways and exterior spaces in addition to the living room and porches. Monetary gifts helped purchase and replace decorations and host a thank-you party.

This year, the club will be taking on two projects:

  • The Amaryllis Club will present the 2016-17 Holiday Home Tour theme of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” through a design plan for the lower level of Pinewood Estate. Based on the year 1943, volunteers who donate their time, talent and monetary gifts will help plan, purchase and install decorations in the following areas: pantry, dining room, round room, office, morning room, loggia, living room, hallways, porches, adjacent exterior spaces, and the Visitor Center.
  • The Amaryllis Club will be endeavoring to raise matching funds for a grant for a restoration project through a fundraising event or other activities for Pinewood Estate’s beloved frog fountain and east terrace. Bok Tower Gardens was awarded a $50,000 matching grant from the Florida Division of Historical Resources. The Amaryllis Club has made a $50,000 commitment to match state funds for the project. To make a donation to the Frog Fountain Project please contact Julie Diaz at 863-734-1212 or jdiaz@boktower.org.
