The RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum announced that any monies raised as part of its tax deductible Brick Program Fundraiser through Aug. 31 will also be applied toward the Ingram family’s $100,000 Challenge Grant.
According to a press release, each brick purchased will be engraved with the donor’s name or company and placed in the Hall’s Walk of Fame. With the Ingram family matching funds, a $500 gift essentially represents a $1,000 donation toward reducing the Hall’s bank loan.
“In addition to individuals adding their memory permanently on our Walk of Fame, this is an excellent way for companies to honor employees or as a memorial to a loved one who served in the manufactured housing or recreation vehicle industries,” explained Barry Cole of MH Insurance Services, who also serves as vice chairman of the Hall’s board and co-chairman of the Brick Program Fundraiser.
He said there are three ways individuals or companies and organizations can participate in the Brick Program fundraiser.
“First, if they purchase a single 4-by-8-inch brick for $250, the engraved brick can have two lines of type, 14 characters long,” Cole said. “Second, they can purchase an 8-by-8-inch brick for $500 and receive three lines of type, 14 characters long.
“And finally, our third level is a special program we just introduced called the Enhanced Brick Program. You get everything in the 8-by-8-inch brick program, plus they can add a logo or graphic that will also be engraved on their brick. The regular price for this enhancement is $750.”
Darryl Searer, president of the Hall, added, “During this special promotion between now and the end of August, any person or company that purchases the 8-by-8-inch brick will be upgraded to the Enhance Brick Program at no additional cost, representing a $250 value.
“We think this program has broad appeal because those who donate get something tangible in return for their tax deductible donation – a brick honoring themselves, a loved one, or a valued employee on the Walk of Fame. And those who donate can be proud of the fact that they are also helping the Hall reduce its bank loan.”
