Florida Solar Energy Center Seeks Funds For New Auditorium

When the Florida Solar Energy Center moved to its new facility on the campus of the University of Central Florida, included in the plans was a state-of-the-art educational/meeting facility. A generous gift from the late H. George Carrison and matching funds from the State of Florida (U.S.A.) provided the financial resources to make the much-needed auditorium a reality.

Although Mr. Carrison’s gift and the state funds provided enough to let the FSEC build the auditorium, the Center is still about $20,000 short of putting in all the modern equipment and materials needed to use the latest computer-assisted educational and presentation tools. To showcase the work of FSEC researchers and allow them to use the latest technology, they still need some computer equipment and audiovisual tools, including a data-video projector, sound system, laser disk player, and control system.

In order to raise the needed funds, the FSEC is “selling” the seats in the auditorium. For a tax-deductible gift of $150, the FSEC will put your name (or a name you wish to honor) on a gold plaque on the back of one of the chairs in the auditorium as a permanent record of your support.

There are only 150 seats in the auditorium, so if you’re interested in helping, contact Dr. David L. Block, Director, FSEC, 1679 Clearlake Rd., Cocoa, FL 32922-5703, U.S.A.; phone: +1.407.638.1000; fax: +1.407.638.1010. ©1996. All Rights Reserved. A Publication of the National Hydrogen Association.
