Charlesworth Park Project reaches goal

October 28th, 2013 | Posted by Alicia Lemaire in Fundraising | News | Projects - (0 Comments)

It’s official!! After a couple years of hard work we have raised enough money to build the park next year! A huge thank you to Amarjeet Sohi for speaking to the developers of our neighbourhood on our behalf. When he told them we only had $37,500 left to raise, Cameron Developments donated an additional $7,500 (from their previous $10,000 donation) and MLC donated $30,000!!!

Please watch your mailboxes for our pamphlet that will give you an opportunity to donate to the park project. We are hoping to raise additional funds so we can install poured-in-place rubber in the park instead of the engineered wood fibre we are currently budgeted for. We appreciate your continued support and look forward too seeing you at the park! Remember, even if you donated last year you can donate again this year and get a new tax receipt for the next tax season. We will also total all of your donations so that your name can be displayed on the next level on the rock plaque.

I would like to take the time to recognize some of the businesses that have donated to our project:

  • MLC Group: $30,000
  • United Communities: $25,000
  • Cameron Developments: $17,500
  • Bedrock Homes/Carrington Communities: $10,000
  • Landmark Homes: $2,000
  • Jatec Electric: $2,000
  • Homes by Avi: $1,000
  • Mani Bagga: $500

If have questions, wish to volunteer or would like to be added to our email list for updates please email us or check us out on Facebook.
