A special THANK YOU to our Playground Project Sponsors!
I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who came out on Saturday, May 11, 2019 to help build our playground. It turned out to be a beautiful day! We had a great turnout! Special thanks to the following organizations. We could not have done it without you!
Dawn Busters Kiwanis Club
Rudolph Matas Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, Students, and staff
A special thanks to Deacon Chuck LeBlanc from St. Mary Magdalen Church for the blessings.
Food was donated by the following:
Dawn Busters Kiwanis Club
Rudolph Matas PTO
All of this would not have been possible without our sponsors:
Grant sponsors: KaBOOM! Keurig Dr Pepper, Dyna-Play, Landscape Structures Inc.
Playground Sponsors: Jefferson Parish Councilman Paul D. Johnston; Metairie Bank; Raising Canes Chicken Fingers, an Anonymous donor, and Rudolph Matas PTO-includes Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, Students, and Staff.
Construction Supporters: Hybrid Construction, LaFarge Concrete, and Beverly Sand.
Thank you to Traci and Mary from Snug as a Bug Embroidery and Screen Printing, Kristin from Auto Wraps, Reece Supply, Home Depot, and Woods AC & Heating for their contributions.
A very special thank you to Linda and Lee Prout. Many of you probably do not know this, but these 2 special people have contributed their time to help build approximately 75 KaBOOM! community build playgrounds around the country. We were very blessed and fortunate to have had them be a part of our event. Their bucket list consists of participating in 100 community builds. Please join me in wishing them the best of luck in reaching this goal.
