Editor, The Times:
The Clearwater Memorial Splashpark fundraising committee will be hosting a silent auction fundraiser in conjunction with the upcoming “Fregatta.” Although we recently received a grant of $137,000 from the federal government, we still need to fundraise for this project. We are seeking “new” or “gently used” items for the silent auction.
The auction will be held in the Sportsplex on Friday, Sept. 11, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 12, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Coffee, tea, cold drinks and cookies by donation.
The splash park will be built and operating for the spring of 2016. We are so excited to be able to contribute this piece of infrastructure for our community and the young families living here.
If you are able to assist us in any way, please contact me at 250-674-3690 or 250-674-8825. Ideally we would like to have all items collected by Aug. 31 for the purpose of cataloguing and organizing.
We also hope you will attend the event to insure its success.
Thank you for your time and consideration of our event.
