From everyone at Friends of Erskine, we want to thank each of the 150 generous people who joined us at “Let the Fountain Flow – A Night Out to Support the Erskine Fountain.”
We owe untold gratitude toward all our partners, neighborhood business supporters, financial contributors, silent auction contributors, and volunteers without whose support this would not be possible.
Thanks to your generosity we are happy to report that we raised more than $24,000. Combined with the $20,000 raised in 2015 and 2016 and the matching component of the Park Pride grant, we are well on our way toward obtaining the $96,000 required to complete Phase One of the restoration.
Last but certainly not least, we want to thank you for your contribution. Without you, there would be no party, there would be no audience, and there would be no future for the Erskine Fountain.
