Ramsey Park fundraising nearing 60% of overall goal

weheartrp250x188Fundraising for the Ramsey Park enhancements now top $47,000 towards the $80,000 goal. Over 200 families and business have contributed. (To put that in context, rosedale.nextdoor.com puts the number of neighborhood households at just over 1,600.)  The park master plan calls for a range of exciting improvements to the park for current and future generations. Details are provided in the following letter from head of the RNA Parks Committee.

Dear neighbors,

I am excited to announce that we have raised over $47,000 in donations towards our $80,000 goal. For those of you keeping track, this means we have raised over $427,000 of the projected $460,000 needed to implement Phases I to IV of the park renovation project. Yeah!
Thank you to the more than 200 families and businesses that have contributed on average more than $200 each.

If you have contributed, please take a few minutes to talk to or email your friends and neighbors and tell them why you are supporting Ramsey Park. Believe it or not, there are many people who use the park regularly who have not heard of the project. They may not live in Rosedale or maybe they are not on this listserv. Please help us reach out and share with them your story. These few minutes of your time can have a big impact on your family’s quality of life!
As we move into summer, we will have to make decisions about what we can and can’t implement based on cash on hand. Every bit of support helps!
