The 42 Acres Fund Request Update


August 7, 2019

We are getting closer and closer to meeting our goal of $800,000 for the 25% matching funds needed to purchase the 42 Acres. We only need another $123,000 to reach that goal that seemed so far off just a year ago! We have a very generous Grand Beach resident who has offered to match 100% of new funds donated to the Village up to $61,500 to meet the $123,000 goal. Now is the time for those of you who have not yet donated to make your donations so that those funds will be doubled. For those of you who have already been so very generous, maybe you would be willing to donate a few more dollars to help us reach this goal. I know I am going to dig a little deeper to see what else I can do.

As donations continue to come in, the dollar amounts will change daily.

The numbers are in from the fundraiser and we are very happy to announce that $61,781 was raised at that event! Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this fundraiser a huge success, those that helped put it together, those that bid on auction items and those that made donations. We are grateful to each and every one of you.

Thank you to all of you for your generosity to help make this project a reality. We're almost there. Let's go GB....we can do this!

Checks made payable to the Village of Grand Beach should be sent to 48200 Perkins Blvd., Grand Beach, MI 49117.

With Sincere Thanks,

Debbie Lindley
Grand Beach Village Council President
