Citizens Begin LAST Fundraising Campaign for the R Park Pavilion

R Park 68th Birthday Flyer

Two years ago, Citizens Fundraising Initiative for R Park set a goal of raising $50,000 to help the City with its costs in building a medium-sized, 40-person Pavilion in R Park. As of May 1, we are only $5,522 away from that $50,000 goal!

We invite households and businesses to join with us in making a $68 donation to this project as a gift to our City on its 68th Birthday. In return, we will celebrate with you on Roeland Park’s birthday, July 2, from 6-7 p.m., at R Park’s small shelter. You’ll enjoy birthday cake and be a part of a group Birthday Photo Shoot wearing an R Park t-shirt which will be given to each donor (while supplies last).

How to Give a $68 Birthday Gift to Roeland Park: Please make your tax-deductible check payable to “Roeland Park Community Foundation,” Memo on check: “R Park Pavilion,” and take or mail to Roeland Park City Hall, 4600 W. 51st Street, Roeland Park, KS 66205. To pay online, go to the City’s website at In the search box type “online payments.” It will take you to a donations section and if you click on the link to the GKCCF, it will take you to the donation form. Be sure to specify that the donation goes to “R Park Pavilion.” There is a small fee to pay by credit card online. City Hall can’t take credit card payments over the phone, but they can take credit/debit card information from you in person, as well as checks and cash.

Together we can complete this LAST fundraising effort for a critically-needed pavilion in R Park. Scheduled to be built as part of the R Park Master Plan, this pavilion will offer protection from rain and the hot sun and will provide a shelter for City events, family reunions, children’s birthday parties, organizations’ activities and neighborhood gatherings.

Thank you for your care and devotion to our City on its 68th Birthday!

Gratefully, Citizens Fundraising Initiative for R Park
