Off the Waffle Week is Here!

Last week we made a major announcement in our Give Play campaign. Thanks to the generosity of ECA supporter Eric Hample, donations made to our Give Play campaign will now be matched! Eric has issued a $5,000 matching gift challenge. This means that every gift raised between now and Christmas will be matched by Eric’s gift, up to $5,000. This effectively doubles the impact of your gift, tutoring a $50 contribution into $100 or a $100 gift into $200 for Civic Park! Don’t miss this chance to make your gift to Civic Park go further, click here to donate to our Give Play campaign today.

This week, we are celebrating Off the Waffle Week with a special offer for contributors to the campaign. When you donate $10 or more to ECA, you’ll automatically receive a $5 Off the Waffle gift card! And, containing this week, all donors will receive a coupon for a free 16-ounce beverage from The Human Bean. Piping hot waffles and a cozy cup of coffee, what a perfect pairing!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for a New Year’s Eve Celebration with ECA and Viking Braggot! On December 31st, Viking Braggot will host a fun-filled evening with drinks, appetizers, and music at their Southtowne Pub. ECA will be there to share some our successes from the past year and give a preview of plans for Civic Park in 2019. As a fundraiser for ECA, $1 from every pint sold will be donated to Civic Park. Visit our Facebook event page for event updates over the next two weeks.

We’re thankful to all of the businesses and individuals who help make our Give Play campaign special. It is encouraging to see people from across the community recognize the value that physical activity and play provide in our lives. With your help, we can provide more opportunities for children, teens, and adults to reap the physical, mental, emotional, and social benefits of play through Civic Park.
