Harvest Moon Dinner Auction Fundraiser Results

Thank you to everyone who contributed and attended our Harvest Moon Dinner Auction Fundraiser on Saturday, November 4th, 2023. As a result of your generosity the event raised over:


This incredible number, combined with an extremely generous family's matching funds, means we will reach our first goal of 100,000 in funding!

The playground team had several stretch goals in mind including bathroom access, high-quality artificial playground turf, more playground obstacles, drinking fountains, a cafe, and full playground shading. With this over-the-top giving, and ongoing support from our community reaching out to donate their time and materials, we hope to be able to include several of our stretch goals in the finished grounds.

We have received a $68,000 grant & over $21,000 from the auction. This paired with matching funds and ongoing donations has put us at nearly $120,000 in funding!

We will be looking to incorporate several stretch goals that were not originally included in the 100,000 goal such as shades, astroturf, drinking fountains, and more.
