Knollwood Park Pavilion Fundraising Campaign

Together with the City of Kitchener, we want to celebrate the centennial of this extraordinary community with the revitalization of Knollwood Park. The plan will turn our park into a harmonious greenspace that invites neighbours to spend Time outside together to meet, talk, play, eat and enjoy, thus strenghtening bonds between individuals and groups which characterize the cohesion and vitality of this community.

The City of Kitchener has allocated close to $100,000 to a Knollwood Park Revitalization! Work started in July 2013 to build a new trail system with benches and new trees, upgrade the playground and modernize the sports fields.

Let’s build a pavilion!

The ANA is committed to a fundraising campaign to build a pavilion in the park.

In conjunction with the Park makeover, the Auditorium Neighbourhood Association is fundraising to build a Community Pavilion where neighbours can meet, kids can take shelter from a storm during play and our seniors can find shade on a walk.

The City of Kitchener is working with us to help us achieve our goal. It will provide tax receipts for your generous donations.

Exciting Results at Halftime

WJK-servicesWe are excited that the generousity of our community members beats all our expectations. At halftime we are approaching 80% of our target. The Kitchener Rangers ($25,000) are so far the biggest contributor, but we also raised $ 10,000 from neighbours. Some families have made very generous donations, but there are allso dozens of small donations which we value all the same. Our favourite story so far is that of the Lompart boys Wes and Kegan plus James Sweeney who have worked all summer edging front yards in the hood and donated 50% of their income to the campaign! Well done and special thanks to the boys.

Now  we need you to help us cross the finish line—Consider making this YOUR CHOICE FOR DONATIONS in 2013!
