Allen County Fairgrounds Fund Raising Drive
2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the Allen County Fair, July 22-27 - - the perfect time to kick-off a $20,000 Gazebo Building Project for the Allen County Fairgrounds.
The Gazebo will provide a beautiful backdrop for the many special events and 4H projects that are held at the Fairgrounds throughout the year. It will be a place to take memorable photographs that will foster memories forever.
In fact, this Building Project is planned in response to many requests by those who have rented the fairground buildings for special events, including wedding receptions, graduation and anniversary parties, company picnics, competitions and more.
The Allen County Fairgrounds is a Not-For-Profit Organization which is not funded by tax dollars. Improvements and growth of the fairgrounds are dependent on public and business donations. The Allen County Fairgrounds supports the young people in 4H and their programs.
Organizations and individuals donating $500 or more toward the Gazebo Building Project will be recognized on a plaque in the Gazebo. Naming rights are also available for a large contribution. For additional information on the Building Project, and the 25th Allen County Fair, visit allencountyfairgroundsin.com, or call 449-4444.
