The Municipality of Brighton and the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board have joined forces to build a new track and sports field at East Northumberland Seconday School.
The fundraising kick-off event, called "Out of the Blocks" will take place on Friday, March 5 at 6:30pm at the Community Hall in the Brighton Arena. Show your support for this project by coming to "Out of the Blocks" on March 5. Members of the fundraising committee will be delivering invitations to the kick-off event to local business. Thank you for your support.
Now a little about it..... the event already has Mayor WIlliams, Mayor Herrington, MP, Rick Norlock, MPP, Lou Rinaldi, the Trenton Base Commander, and Cramahe Mayor Marc Coombs confirmed to be there. There will be wine served, as well as some light refreshments, and food. At the kick-off we will be talking about the goals, where the money goes, and what else we are doing for fundraising events, as well as accepting donations.
The goal of the committee is to raise $850,000 by May 2011, and to date we have already had donations! Brighton Municipality has committed $200,000 as a matching grant for any funds raised locally, and KPRDSB has agreed to budget $140,000, and we are still in the progress of gathering other donations. The organisers of the event will have donation cards, and you will have the option of purchasing a "piece" of the track in the form of your donation. The pieces will be sold, Platinum - $500, Gold - $300, SIlver $100 and Bronze $25.
