For more than 30 years, Ric Goodman and John Hurtubise have supported the Museum as attendees of events, such as exhibition openings, the Cummer Ball, and Garden Concerts. However, it was not until about six years ago, when Ric’s granddaughter attended Camp Cummer, that they decided to become more deeply engaged. Seeing the excitement about the programming at the Museum from a child’s perspective was encouragement enough, and soon Ric was a docent-in-training. Since then, the couple has been continuously impressed with the Museum’s commitment to being a welcoming venue for all people interested in arts and culture.
In 2015, Ric and John became first-time supporters of the Ponce de León Society and have agreed to become the new Chairs of the Ponce de León Society.
“The Cummer is a major highlight of our city and through the Ponce de León Society we can offer experiences that can make a difference in a child’s life.” – John Hurtubise
The Museum expresses its heartfelt gratitude to outgoing PDL Chairs Bill Struck and Mary Bebout.
