An Opportunity To Leave A Legacy
Whether you help support the arts, including the Virginia Theatre, assist in funding the development of parks and trails or the purchase of land and open space, or if you wish to help a child attend day camp or learn to swim or play in a sports program by supporting the Youth Scholarship Fund, your donation will make a difference and for many years to come.
For more information, please call Laura Auteberry, Marketing & Development Director at (217) 819-3839 or visit www.champaignparkdistrict.com/cpdfoundation.htm
Can you swing an extra $5 to help another child be able to enjoy the same
quality programs you and your family are enjoying? All it takes is this one little
gift to make a huge difference in the life of a child who might not otherwise
be able to experience day camps, sports programs, swim or dance instruction
or arts programs due to economic hardship. So can you swing it? Simply
indicate your donation on your program registration form when completing for your
own programs or click here to MAKE A DONATION. It’s easy! Donate today and make a difference in a child’s life!
Double Dutch-A Jump for Joy
The Champaign Parks Foundation has received another gift from the late Michael Carragher in the amount of $88,210 to be put toward the creation of a rotating sculpture program in West Side Park. The first sculpture, “Double Dutch-A Jump for Joy”, created by Garry R. Bibbs of Lexington, Kentucky, was installed and dedicated in West Side August 19, 2010 as part of the launch of the new Public Art League public art program. This sculpture will remain in the park for a minimum of two years at which time the lease will either be renewed or the sculpture will be replaced with another.
