Savannah Jaycees Raises Almost $2,000 for March of Dimes

(SAVANNAH, GA) In support of the Coastal Empire March for Babies, the Savannah Jaycees raised $1,702 for the March of Dimes. Eleven members of the Jaycees fundraised through social media campaigns, community outreach efforts, and family and friend donations.

The Savannah Jaycees members who participated included: Ken Adams, Will Gruver, Randi Hempel, Olivia King, Brandy Lee, Kenneth Lee, Marcie Moxley, Marianne Poppell, Amanda Quaranta, Patrick Spivey and Brittany Rowland. The team walked through the pouring rain at the actual March for Babies in support of the campaign as well.

Randi Hempel, the President of the Savannah Jaycees said, “Supporting organizations such as the March of Dimes aligns with the Jaycees mission, and I’m thrilled that our chapter, families and friends could rally such support from our community.”

The mission of the March of Dimes is to help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. Proceeds raised from the March of Babies help fund research initiatives, education materials, health care coverage and newborn comfort gifts.

“The Coastal Empire March for Babies is one of the Savannah area’s signature walk events,” said Olivia King, Vice President of Communications of the Savannah Jaycees. “Who knew walking 3.1 miles in the rain could be so fun.”

Historic Savannah Foundation Honors Felder & Associates’ Rehab Project 
Savannah Architecture Firm Honored for Work on The Grey

(SAVANNAH, GA) Felder & Associates is pleased to announce that its rehabilitation project of the historic Greyhound Bus Depot, now a new restaurant, The Grey, has received a prestigious Historic Savannah Foundation’s (HSF) 2015 Preservation Award. Located at 109 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard within Savannah’s Historic District, the property was originally designed by architect George D. Brown and was constructed between 1937-1939.

“We are very pleased this project was recognized by the Historic Savannah Foundation,” said Brian Felder, AIA, managing principal of Felder & Associates. “The Grey is a rare and excellent example of the Streamline Moderne style of architecture in Savannah. Our priority was to preserve the distinctive features, finishes and construction techniques, and match new features to the old in design, color and texture.”

Replacements of old missing features were substantiated by pictorial and documentary evidence, and included replication of historic materials as recommended by the National Park Service and following the Secretary of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation. Gretchen Callejas, the project architect for Felder and Associates, ensured the proposed interior and exterior modifications remained true to the original design and those designs met the Department of Interior guidelines for preservation. The space was conceived by New York–based firm Parts and Labor Design with Bloomquist Construction Company, Inc., serving as general contractor.

Owned by New York entrepreneur John O. Morisano and offering up a distinctively modern southern cuisine masterminded by executive chef Mashama Bailey, The Grey opened last December. In February, the restaurant was named a semifinalist for the James Beard Award in the best new restaurant category. It has been prominently featured in Architectural Digest and the Washington Post.

Each year, the HSF celebrates the best of preservation by presenting Preservation Awards to individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate excellence in historic preservation in Savannah and Chatham County. The Awards are judged for the success they have achieved in the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and interpretation of local architectural and cultural heritage.
