Description

A fundraising party for the Campaign for the Duluth Rowing Center!

Join us for an evening of generous appetizers, silent and live auctions, music, and fun! Come to the 2nd Annual ICEBREAKER at Greysolon Plaza Moorish Room, March 16, 5:00-8:00 pm.

We will soon welcome the open water and the start of a new rowing season. Let's celebrate by raising funds to complete the final phase of the Duluth Rowing Center - completing the grounds work and landscaping.

We are extremely proud that the Duluth Rowing Center has two new buildings completed! The Joseph M. Krmpotich Boathouse was constructed in 2016 and the Clubhouse, which has locker rooms, meeting and workout space, and additional storage for rowing shells was finished last fall.

All that is left to complete the new Rowing Center is the groundswork and landscaping. The estimated cost is nearly $80,000, which includes a parking area of asphalt and permeable surface pavers, shoreline rock, trees, lawn and shrubbery.

It is vital that we finish this work during the spring of 2018 before the next rowing season starts. This is driven not only by the Rowing Club’s commitment to make this an attractive, environmentally-friendly property for the community to enjoy, but the City of Duluth requires that this work be completed to obtain a certificate of occupancy.

At the Icebreaker you'll enjoy a short program about the history and value of rowing to our community, especially our growing youth rowing program. You'll get information on the progress of the new Duluth Rowing Center. And you'll also get to mix and mingle with friends who share your love of our beautiful waterfront while promoting the sport of rowing.

Most importantly, you'll learn how you can be part of this final fundraising sprint to compete the Duluth Rowing Center. This new outdoor water recreational facility will be a tremendous asset for the Duluth area and provide expanded opportunities for youths and adults to experience all the benefits that rowing has to offer, such as improved health and fitness, teamwork skills that come from being part of a crew, and appreciation of the Lake Superior waterways.

Enjoy delicious food and bid on unique auction items while you support a great project. All proceeds earned during the evening go toward this final groundswork and landscaping. Won't you join in helping to support this worthy commnity project?

Bring your friends and family—everyone is welcome. Here's to good food and fundraising on March 16th!
