Â The RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum created a new program to help reduce their recent loan and get RVers involved in the museum.
Darryl Searer, president of the Hall of Fame, said that RVers, manufacturers and anyone else could contribute and be memorialized at the site with one of three bricks.
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.
“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.”
He said the logo-engraved brick would run $750 and noted that any company buying an 8-by-8-inch brick would automatically be upgraded to the engraved brick through August.
The program qualifies as a donation to the Ingram family’s $100,000 Challenge Grant and is tax deductible.
Searer said, “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.”
For those who would like to purchase a brick and at the same time make a contribution toward the Ingram family’s $100,000 challenge grant, the Hall has made it easy to contribute. Contributions can be made through the Hall’s secure web site, www.rvmhhalloffame.org or by mail, phone or fax. If paying by check or money order, make payable to the RV/MH Hall of Fame.
