In Memoriam: William Schmidt

William E. Schmidt and wife Casiana Schmidt
Casiana and Bill Schmidt in Lewis Place

On Saturday, August 16th, benefactor William Schmidt passed away in his home in Sarasota. We have lost a great patron and friend of the arts. Bill believed that all children deserve to grow up in a country where their dreams know no bounds and their ambitions extend as far as their talents and hard work can take them.
In infinite gestures, both small and large, you have made all of our lives better, and for that we are incredibly grateful.
