We did it!!!
Yes we did it!! We were able to raise the $245,000 needed to break ground on a new Ginn Playground! This is a huge milestone and we could not have accomplished this significant goal without the support of neighbors, friends and businesses. THANK YOU!
While this milestone is significant we still need to raise an additional $35,000 to finish the playground. You can still make a donation. Please click on the Donate Here Button. All contributions large and small make a difference. We will BeGINN AGAIN!!
For those of you who missed the Holiday House Tour in early December here is a recap.
On December 5, 2010, the weather was beautiful albeit a little chilly when over 300 people came out to stroll the Flats and get inspired by the holiday decorations which adorned 4 beautiful homes in the neighborhood. This event raised over $5300 for the Ginn Playground Restoration Project. We could not have raised as much money as we did with the Holiday House Tour without the significant help received from Fino Fresh Floral which created numerous floral masterpieces or several of the homes. McCues of Woburn and Stems of Winchester also contributed beautiful greens and flower arrangements which went a long way towards creating the festive environment. The Wooden Crate donated extra special tasty goodies for our raffle and R.J Carroll of the Piano Studio entertained visitors with jazz and holiday favorites at the magnificent Church Street home and kept the crowd in a jolly mood. And last but not least a huge thank you to the four homeowners who really went the extra mile and inspired all who attended.
