Juilfs Park Playground Fundraising
Honor someone special and support your community through the Playground Fund! Leave a legacy for the “Apple of Your Eye” on the farm-themed playground. Donors of $100 or more will have their tribute featured in a lasting, meaningful, and creative way on the sponsor Apple Tree.
A portion of each donation will be used to purchase and install a tribute acknowledgement; proceeds from the balance of the donation go to the purchase of play equipment, surfaces, structures, and landscaping associated specifically with the Juilfs Park Playground. Sponsorships of any amount are welcomed.
Park district staff welcomes the opportunity to discuss gift-giving options with you or your company! Contact Scott Lahman: (513) 388-5091.
