Nov. 30, 2015 – Dan and Elaine Dickerson, owners of Driftwood Bistro,
donated $3,500 to Wolfson Children’s at Southeast Georgia Health
System on Nov. 19, 2015. The check was presented to Krista Robitz, director,
Development, Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation, Paul Trumbull,
director, Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Neurodiagnostic Services,
Southeast Georgia Health System, and Lindsay Phillips, development coordinator,
Baptist Health Foundation.
Driftwood Bistro is located in the Villas by the Sea Resort and Conference
Center on Jekyll Island and serves “Low Country cuisine with a twist”
and local shrimp dishes. During the month of October, the Dickersons advertised
that a portion of all proceeds would be donated to a local charity and
the community responded in kind. Until Bill Cochran, marketing consultant,
Brunswick News, contacted Robitz at the end of the month, she had no idea
that the proceeds would benefit Wolfson Children’s at Southeast
Georgia Health System.
“Wow!” said Robitz as Dan Dickerson handed her the donation.
“We will certainly put this to good use. Innumerable children will
benefit from your generosity.”
Wolfson Children’s at Southeast Georgia Health System, located in
the Medical Plaza adjacent to the Health System’s Brunswick Campus,
provides pediatric outpatient care in a variety of specialties, including
pediatric cardiology, hematology, oncology, urology and rehabilitation
services. The specialty center’s rehabilitation services include
occupational, speech and physical therapies along with specialty services
for sports and orthopaedic therapy. The programs help to increase children’s
fine motor skills, coordination, social skills, sensory integration, strength
and endurance, and speech-language function.
“After everything this organization has provided to the community
and its children, it’s my pleasure to give back,” says Dickerson.
