Shade-Our-Kids Project Update

Sunday, August 9, 2015 @ 08:08 AM

Dear Members:

It has been over four months since we first announced and began accepting contributions to fund our Shade-Our-Kids Project.   Hence, we thought it appropriate to update everyone on where we are with this project. The good news is that we have collected over $12,000 (Note: this amount includes a $6,000 donation from Philip A. Bryant Melanoma Foundation).

This month, we will be presenting to the City of Treasure Island a formal request asking the City to fund 50% of the project cost (Note: total cost of the project is estimated to be $22,500).   Basically, we are convinced that the Shade-Our-Kids Project is such a viable project and that in order to more quickly move this project forward, we feel it necessary to now approach the city for their support – with money in hand.

The next meeting of the City Commissioner’s is Tuesday, August 18 (at 6:00) at City Hall. Please, if you can, plan on attending this meeting. By doing so, you will be helping us show the City our unified support. Thank you.

Steve Yost
