Actress Scarlett Johansson, who recently won the Super Bowl promotion, “Find Your Fortune at Flamingo,” co-sponsored by Flamingo South Beach condominiums and Fortune International, announced today that she will donate the one-year lease on the three-bedroom condominium to Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH). The donated unit will be used by the hospital for families of out-of-town patients as a peaceful respite during their child’s treatments.
Upon hearing the news of Ms. Johansson’s generosity, Flamingo developer Michael Lerner of Chicago-based MCZ/Centrum, enhanced the donation by exchanging her three-bedroom lease for leases on three, one-bedroom units so that more families could benefit from the partnership.
“We are grateful to Ms. Johannson and Flamingo South Beach for their generosity. Our patients and their families will certainly benefit from having these lovely homes away from home while they are in town and under our care,” said Cynthia Gutierrez-White, spokesperson for Miami Children’s Hospital.
“We were delighted when Ms. Johansson held the magic key to win the ultimate Super Bowl prize,” said MCZ/Centrum developer Michael Lerner. “And we were even more impressed when she suggested donating her Flamingo condo to Miami Children’s Hospital. Both Flamingo South Beach and MCZ/Centrum are committed to giving back to communities in which we do business.”
