WINONA LAKE — Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority have launched a crowdfunding campaign for the Miller Sunset Pavilion.
The pavilion will contain Winona Lake’s ice rink. The goal for the campaign is to raise $50,000 by June 30, 2022. To donate to the project through Patronicity, people may click the link here.
If successful, the project, led by the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce, will receive a matching grant as part of IHCDA’s CreatINg Places program.
“This pavilion will provide a fun place for residents of Winona Lake to gather,” Crouch said. “Projects like this are the heart of the CreatINg Places program, engaging and activating communities to enhance Indiana neighborhoods.”
Funds from this campaign will be used to build a community gathering space for activities year-round. Along with ice skating activities will include concerts, private events and more.
“I am excited to see our community have a new space for residents of all ages to enjoy year-round,” said Winona Lake Town Manager Craig Allebach. “We can plan holiday events and festivals around this new pavilion, which will also be a destination for everyday activities for people to enjoy the outdoors.”
The CreatINg Places program began in 2016; projects have raised more than $5.5 million in public funds and an additional $4.5 million in matching IHCDA funds.
The program is available to projects located in Indiana communities. Nonprofit entities and local units of government are eligible to apply.
