We need HELP! We have a once in a lifetime chance to acquire private property at 4546 N. Kedvale to create new park space east of Elston, west of Pulaski Avenue. May 2018 is our deadline to raise the necessary funding to finalize the contract. Multiple matching grants have already been secured but they require an equal amount be secured from the local community as affirmation of community support. Your contribution WILL transform your community. You CAN make a difference for children in Mayfair for decades to come.  We need every dollar to reach our goal of giving Mayfair's kids safe access to park space. 100% of donations to Mayfair Park Advisory Council are tax deductible and confidential. Please support us today!  Mayfair Park Advisory Council Mayfair Civic Association

MAYFAIR KIDS NEED THE TRIANGLE PLAYLOT

AND THEY NEED YOUR HELP TO GET IT!

As a signer of our Triangle Park Petition, you know that Mayfair Civic Association is working with Alderman Laurino, Openlands, Mayfair Park Advisory Council and others to acquire the triangular lot at 4546 N Kedvale to create a new playlot for Mayfair’s nearly one-thousand children.

We have secured $25,000 in matching grant funds if we can raise that much from the community. As of June 1, 2018, we have received $13,000 in checks and cash, and $8,255 at the MPAC gofundme site, for a total of $21,255. We need just $3,745 by the extended closing date of June 25 to get there.   WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please show your community spirit and give $100 or whatever you can afford.

Please also support us by participating in the following event:

1.  June 7 Fundraiser at Old Irving Brewery, between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m.

And thank you for any prior donation and for attending any of our earlier events, such as the March 29 Kickoff at Marie’s; the May 10 and 24 Community Nights at Potbelly; and the May 18 Trivia Night at the Irish American Heritage Center.

Thank you to all of those that have already contributed to the cause of securing the land beginning to be known as Triangle Park Mayfair. Our efforts have raised a large portion towards the $25,000 goal that will result in a matching Grant double it to $50,000. We have clearly displayed a public outcry of interest for this new green space. We have all of you to thank for that.

There is a fundraiser planned at Old Irving Brewing Co. on Thursday June 7th. More details to follow regarding that event. Please mark your calendars!
