January 25, 2019 Update on Fundraising
While construction is almost complete, fundraising continues. We had a fun, family Wing Night January 19th to break up the winter blues with cold beer, hot wings, followed by ice cream during –34 Temps. Over 100 people attended. All proceeds went to the Expansion.
Your donations this year have helped bring this exciting project to where it is today and the encouragement we have received from your support keeps our committee and volunteers hard at work to get the job completed.
So far community donations from individuals, families, foundations and businesses along with support from the RM of Springfield and the Province of Manitoba has resulted in approximately $1,000,000 raised from our efforts over the last several years.. This is a terrific accomplishment, but we have more to go to reach our $1.4 million goal. We are winding up the first phase of our campaign February 14th, 2019. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested in this work or you would like to make an additional donation to help “close the gap”, please contact Zoe Thompson at 1(204)444-2242 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you probably know, donors will be recognized on a permanent donor plaque which will be unveiled at the opening celebration. Make sure your name is there forever!
Once again, thank you for your support and encouragement. Cooks Creek is On The Move and soon the expanded Centre you have helped build will be our new home for community celebration and activities for all.
