The Town of Bracebridge recently announce a new legacy fundraising initiative to help support the development of the Muskoka Lumber Community Centre.
The Town’s fundraising committee has launched the Best Seat in the House seat sale and Buy a Bay fundraising campaign.
In support of the new arena at the future Muskoka Lumber Community Centre, individuals, families, local sport and community organizations, and businesses are invited to leave their legacy by sponsoring one of the 1,020 arena seats for $500 each.
A name placard will be installed on the purchased seat and will remain in place for 25 years. Donors will receive a charitable tax receipt, issued by the Town of Bracebridge.
The Muskoka Lumber Community Centre will be home to a new 25,000-square-foot Bracebridge Public Library branch. Individuals, families, community organizations, and local businesses are invited to purchase a library bay for books in support for the new facility. The new space will be home to the tools and resources to facilitate a more varied approach to learning and discovery including access to technology and important educational resources, a recording studio, maker space and so much more.
Bays are being sold through EventBrite starting at $250. A name placard will be installed on the bay and all donors are issued a charitable tax receipt.
To further involve the community, the Town of Bracebridge has partnered with the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation (SMHF) on these fundraising opportunities. Fifteen percent of each seat and bay sale will go towards the hospital’s annual capital fundraising campaign for much-needed medical equipment.
The Muskoka Lumber Community Centre is a new multi-purpose venue that will provide the community with a state-of-the-art, multi-generational social hub that consolidates community activities and services under one roof. The facility will be home to an arena, multi-sport fieldhouse, outdoor courtyard, play space and playground, and include space for future expansion. The facility is slated for completion in 2024.
“The new Muskoka Lumber Community Centre is a milestone initiative that will serve our community for decades to come,” says Rick Maloney, Deputy Mayor of the Town of Bracebridge. “I’m excited to see the launch of these two fundraising initiatives to give community members and local businesses the opportunity to bring this facility to life and be part of its legacy.”
The Best Seat in the House and Buy a Bay fundraising initiatives will continue for the duration of the project.
