Together, in the spirit of inclusion, joy and play, WE DID IT!
In late December our project reached its Phase II fundraising goal of $350,000!
The seed was planted two years ago, as friends and family lovingly gave in November 2013 in memory of one young boy. The dream being that we would build a space where all could come together in play and in community, regardless of age or ability.
Two years later, after hundreds of donations and funds from lemonade stands, birthdays, holidays, bike-a-thons, climb-a-thons, little red pails and garage sales, we made that dream come true!
Today, we celebrate YOU! Our community of supporters who had the passion, faith, joy and generosity to make this happen. We celebrate all of the volunteers and donors who gave of their time and resources. And we are grateful for the many, many new, inspiring friends we made along the way.
We can't wait to play!!!
It's not too late to give... Phase III is already in the works! https://donations.onecallforall.org/donate.aspx (Select "Owen's Playground")
The Parks District is actively working at the playground site, weather permitting. Keep an eye out as they move into major phases of construction.
