From Crozet Park’s newsletter:
1. Good news- after about year and half of fundraising we as a community have raised nearly $193,000 That puts us just $7,000 away from our goal of $200,000 on the community match. We have until SEPT 01 – one month to close the gap – we have that deadline from a local foundation in order to receive a grant from them.
The July 2nd weekend events of the Swing Dance and the fireworks raised about $10,000 for this campaign. ?
2. Bad news – despite all of the fundraising we didn’t make the early June deadline to put the down payment needed for fall/winter opening on the dome so it will NOT happen for this upcoming winter season.?
3. Where does that leave us now? Finish the remaining $7,000 so we can get the local grant and helping the park raise the final portion of their part of the pledge.
In May, the park had a large expense in replastering the pool and they still need to raise a bit more to have all of their part of the $200,000 pledge.?
Still looking for volunteers – help with planning tennis and basketball for the park AND we can always use grant writing help! Please contact us via [email protected]
Most likely next event – Fall Party for the PARC as well as the Fall Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival going to help get that portion of the money. Upcoming Dave Mathews/ Tim Reynolds concert at Pavilion Sat Aug 20 – you can pick a charity – chose Claudius Crozet Park to be the beneficiary!!
Thank you Crozet Community for your generous support as we all work hard in getting a year-round recreational facility in western Albemarle county!
