In 2019, through the leadership of District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan and an idea and private funding from a local Orlando resident, Swan-A-Thon, a fundraising effort to help support and further protect the swans at Lake Eola Park was created.
Through Swan-A-Thon, donors now have the option to make financial gifts specifically towards supporting the health and wellbeing of the swans at Lake Eola, now and forever.
The fundraising program is managed through the Orlando Community Youth Trust, a non-profit that supports the mission of the City of Orlando’s Families, Parks and Recreation Department.
