The Rochester Downtown Development Authority (DDA) on Thursday, August 23, announced the creation of a Downtown Rochester Donor Wall of Fame to honor individuals, families, groups and organizations investing in capital projects in the downtown district.
The new wall is intended to create a lasting memory at the DDA's newest park at Walnut Boulevard and University Drive. All money raised will be reinvested in future capital projects to support and improve the downtown district.
Sponsorship opportunities include several different levels, including: Gold level donations of $4,000 will receive a 20 inch by 13.25-inch plaque engraved with up to four lines of text; Silver level donations of $2,000 will receive a 10 inch by 7.5 inch plaque, also with four lines of text; Bronze level donations of $1,000 will receive a 10 inch by 3.75 inch plaque with up to two lines of text. Bench sponsorships also are available at $2,000, along with an engraved plaque on the bench.
"I have already sponsored a plaque in honor of my mother, Marie Stevenson, who passed away last year," Mark Albrecht, DDA chair, said. "She always loved visiting Rochester from her home in California. Please join me in creating a lasting memory for people in your life while contributing to future downtown improvements."
