Sports Dome campaign collects more than $10,000
A recent door-to-door campaign, organized by the Kin Club of Russell collected nearly $15,000 for the Russell Township Sports Dome project.
“People were actually waiting for us at the door with cash and cheques; many promised to donate online and others through their United Way campaign,” explained fundraiser organizer Doug Anthony. Everyone was very positive and so pleased to see the dome will be a reality next year.”
Volunteers from across the township visited the majority of residents on September 24 asking for support for the future sports dome project.
Organizers had pre-ordered 100 white and ten gold lawn signs for the lawn sign challenge (see below) and sold 40 white lawn signs and sold out of the gold ones!
A $100.00 results in a white lawn sign whereas a $500 donation results in a gold sign, plus permanent recognition on the donor wall in the Sports Dome.
Residents can continue to donate on-line to receive a lawn sign or donate through their United Way Campaign to : Kin Canada Foundation 857339436RR0001.
