BENEFITING: GREEN LAWN ABBEY PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION
The Abbey’s star is rising and people are noticing! 2010 has been a great year for our campaign to restore Greenlawn Abbey to her former glory. This year alone,
• Over 400 visitors discovered the Abbey, absorbed her beauty, and contributed towards her renovation.
• Two new programs - Great Gatsby: It’s a Lawn Party! and Bring Back the Magic – became instant traditions. If you weren’t there you really missed something.
• News of the Abbey was featured in multiple print media, radio, and web blogs, reaching an audience in the tens of thousands.
• Site planning began. Our vision of beautiful memorial gardens, parking, and other specialty areas, we are proud to say, are on the drawing board.
Our new campaign - Restore the Doors - says it all. These once magnificent bronze doors no longer suggest the beauty of the Abbey. Vandalized, neglected and covered with plywood they are an eyesore when they should be central to the Abbey experience.
Restoration of the Abbey’s beautiful bronze doors is our #1 Goal for 2011. Because of our 2010 successes we are one-third of the way toward the $30,000 needed. Now we need your help. Your support is vital to accomplishing our goal.
Your donation will be used to remove the dents, replace the glass, install new locks, and restore the stained glass tympanum.
