SAN ANTONIO (April 28, 2013)—Plans to renovate the Children's Hospital of San Antonio have gotten a boost from a $20 million donation from a foundation formed by ex-Pace picante sauce king Christopher Goldsbury.
The Goldsbury Foundation will pay out the millions over five years.
The donation is the largest ever to Christus Santa Rosa Health System in the system’s 144-year history.
The donation will go toward a new two-story lobby and entrance for the $135 million renovation program at the venerable hospital in downtown San Antonio.
Goldsbury sold Pace Foods to the Campbell Soup Co. in 1994 for $1.12 billion and now heads Silver Ventures, an investment firm that's financing the Pearl Brewery redevelopment and numerous other San Antonio projects.
