The Stratford Splash Pad and its Cash for Splash fundraising campaign has successfully advanced to the semi-finals of the current Aviva Community Fund Challenge.
As a semi-finalist, the splash pad is one of 90 ideas competing for 30 finalist positions. The finalists are determined by the most votes accumulated from now until December 13.
The splash Pad has a one in three chance of becoming a finalist.
During this voting period, campaign supporters are asking the public to place a vote every day at www.avivacommunity fund.org/ideas/acf13406.
“There are many great ideas we are competing against, so with your help, we are hopeful that we can be successful for the children of our community,” states a press release from the local splash pad committee.
The top 30 winners based on votes will advance to the finals, where Aviva will judge the ideas and determine which will receive the top prizes of $150,000 and which will receive the consolation prizes of $5,000. In total, Aviva is giving away $1 million dollars in prizes.
