Need cash to splash

Radium Sunrise Rotary Club wants to build a splash park in Radium Hot Springs

Submitted

The Radium Sunrise Rotary Club is ramping up efforts to raise funds for a splash park as part of the redevelopment of the central park around the new Radium Community Centre.

“While the club will continue to help the community elsewhere, efforts for the next year will be focused on fundraising for the Splash Park,” explains Rotary President Erin Palashniuk.

The goal is to raise $200,000 and construct the splash park next summer. Significant progress has already been made. The club’s commitment, along with grants and contributions from Columbia Basin Trust, Rotary Foundation and the recent Springs Senior Men’s Open golf tournament, puts current funds at over $45,000. Dale Shudra, Rotary Splash Park Committee Chair, is excited about this quick start but knows the work is just starting.

“We have been getting very positive feedback on the project but now comes the difficult task of turning that excitement into financial support,” he says.

In addition to numerous grant applications the club is planning raffles as well as approaching potential corporate and individual donors. If you are interested in the splash park or would like to contribute in some manner, please contact Dale at dshudra@gmail.com or epalash@live.ca.
