The World’s Fair Bench Campaign

The Friends of Lincoln Park are currently campaigning for sponsors for new World’s Fair personalized benches. To that end, we have created the Family of Friends of Lincoln Park, each of whom will be a vital member with their contribution to continue the growth of Lincoln Park.

Donated benches feature a brass plaque engraved with your custom message: a dedication to a loved one, a corporate name, a favorite quote, an inscription to the Park or the City, or both – whatever you decide.

Any monies remaining after the bench has been purchased, engraved, stained, and placed by the City will go towards the purchase of new trees, the ongoing maintenance of the two Victorian gardens with annual and perennial plantings, and any and all future needs and improvements.

Friends of Lincoln Park is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, so your contribution is tax-deductible!

We have benches which are currently waiting for sponsors, engraving, and placement – perhaps becoming a new Family member would be of interest to you? To join our Family and provide a prominent and lasting addition to Lincoln Park, simply download, print, complete, and mail the form linked below. Thank you for your consideration!
