Fiesta Night Fundraiser For Park Project


Church of Our Saviour, Lutheran of Manhasset held a very successful Fiesta Night fundraiser where proceeds from the event will be donated in part to the Once Upon a Time Park Rejuvenation Project and SOS Children’s Villages.
As a child’s first step into education, Once Upon A Time is a fairy tale where young children are encouraged to socialize and express creativity. Classes are small and intimate, ensuring that children form a strong foundation for future learning.
Weather permitting, a part of each morning is spent on the playground, where the children enjoy the outdoors, learn to physically challenge their growing bodies, and exercise as part of their daily routine—all of which are invaluable skills that benefit their mental and physical health well beyond nursery school. Despite the daily, year-round use of the playground (including during the school’s summer program), the playground has not been refurbished in 25 years. The school is in need of a new and improved playground that is safe, compliant, and inclusive for children of all abilities to play for many years to come.
The goal is to raise $50-$60,000, which would rejuvenate the entire playground with new equipment suitable for ages two to five, new surfacing, new sub-base, and removal of existing equipment.
One hundred percent tax-deductible donations will help the school continue its mission of engaging young children physically and mentally in a safe and fun outdoor environment. For those who have a donation matching program via an employer, additional information regarding the organization can be provided. Donations will be gratefully accepted. More information about the school can be found at
To contribute, make your check payable to Church of Our Saviour (specify OUAT Park Project in the comments) and mail to: Once Upon A Time at 1901 Northern Blvd., Manhasset, NY 11030.
