We have broken ground on our spacious new dining hall! The shell of the building is up, concrete floor is in, interior walls almost done, the well drilled, and the fire suppression tank has been completed. With the generous support of numerous friends, we have exceeded our fundraising goal of $1.75 million! This includes the $100,000 "top off grant" from the Murdock Trust.
We are ecstatic about reaching the goal, but have also seen our construction expenses increase. Site development costs, electrical work, an increase in the steel building cost, and well have caused a 20% increase. Consequently, we are now ready to continue on with the campaign so we can cross the finish line. With your help, we are confident that we will finish this race strong and will have a gorgeous new building that will provide a place at the table for everyone.
We are excited to honor Kara and Morris Mack with the outdoor courtyard just below the new dining hall. They are long-time friends of the camp with the Yakima School of Karate. Purchase one or more engraved bricks to honor the couple in this outdoor space. This makes a great gift to honor a friend or family member.
The first order of 280 bricks has been placed! This generated over $50,000! Incredible! Many thanks to all who purchased bricks. It will be a wonderful addition to the Mack Courtyard.
Due to popular demand, we will continue to accept paver requests. We will have additional space for these placed at a later date. Each 4 inch by 8 inch brick costs $125 and can include up to three lines. A larger 8 inch by 8 inch brick costs $250 and can include up to six lines. Please complete the Paver Registration form below and designate your contribution for the Mack Plaza just below the dollar amount.
