We are happy to announce we have surpassed the half way point of fundraising for the permanent Brodeur Memorial Plaza to be erected at Auburn High School. Since the beginning of the year, when the memorial was approved by the Auburn School Committee, the foundation has been seeking corporate and philanthropic sponsors to underwrite the cost of development.
In addition those sponsors, the organization will be hosting a fund raising event on Thursday, June 20th at Union Station in Worcester. Cost for the event will be $25. The event will showcase the design of the memorial square, as well as be the kick-off event for additional sponsorship opportunities and its Buy-A-Brick program. Bricks can be bought and personalized for $100. All bricks will be inserted into the memorial square. Read more about the evening by clicking here.
The Major David Brodeur Memorial Plaza, designed by Landworks Collaborative of Worcester principal Bob Mulcahy, will initiate construction by the beginning of July. Construction should be completed by August with a formal dedication ceremony on October 19th, 2013 which will coincide with the annual 5K race on October 20th.
