Bucks For The Boathouse

The Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington and Riddle Point Rowing Association are in the process of raising funds to construct a Program Center/Boathouse at Camp Rock at Lake Lemon and we need your help of financial support for an upcoming fundraiser, an Erg-a-Thon.

A generous donation from the estate of Art and Wilma Hill to the Boys and Girls Club, funds from Riddle Point Rowing Association and proceeds from Team Concept have given us a healthy start, but more is needed for this project, which is to build a two-story boathouse that will also serve as a building to be used by kids with the Boys and Girls Club during summer camps at Camp Rock. The building will allow the Boys and Girls Club to almost double the number of kids who can participate in the summer camps each week.

Thus, the Erg-a-Thon was suggested! Our RPRA members will take pledges from people who will donate a certain amount for every meter rowed during the member's time slot or who may donate a fixed amount.

The Erg-a-Thon will be June 21. After the event, the funds raised are collected and put in the building fund. These donations will be made to the Boys and Girls Club and will be tax deductible.

Did you know?
According to a study by the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington has two ways it provides financial relief for participating families:
First, it reduces the childcare expenses while not sacrificing the quality of care
Second, families maintain a higher income because they can maintain current employment and have the option to work longer hours

And, if you haven't been out to Camp Rock, it is a beautiful, outdoor setting on Lake Lemon that allows youth to experience the outdoors while enjoying a summer camp full of activities.

SIGN UP TO ROW IN THE ERGATHON!
