It's crunch time, the two-minute warning, the last shot as the clock winds down and whatever other sport clichés you can think of. Our Hall of Fame endowment fund through the Winnipeg Foundation needs your help to get it over the top. The Manitoba Heritage Trust Program (MHTP) that sees "stretch dollars" added to our donated funds ends as of March 31st of this year. We are close to meeting our goal which will ensure the long-term sustainability of our Hall of Fame, but we still need your assistance. We have had a great response from many of our members and friends and we are incredibly grateful for that continued support.
Our list of contributors includes Todd MacCulloch, our Premier and ex-BU Bobcat, Brian Pallister, many of the two-time Canadian Jr. champion Winnipeg Stellars, ex-U. of M. Bisons, John Embry, Glen Torgerson, Jon Gurban, John Brown, Ken Galanchuk and Ted Fardoe, Stuart Clark of the Vincent Massey Vikings of Brandon, and many St. Andrews Super Saints, Nicollet Inn, and Winnipeg Wesmen. In total, we have had 124 donors and donations have ranged from the small to the large – all are much appreciated.
If you have already contributed, thank you very much. If not, you are still needed. If you are looking to make an additional donation for the new tax year, now is the time.
Please help us end our campaign with a bang and guarantee that our Hall of Fame and Museum will continue to honour more individuals and teams and to ensure the preservation of our basketball heritage.
