The Kassell Challenge – Thank You!

 Dear Members and friends,

On November 18th, we sent an email to the Southlands membership and posted a sign-up board at the barn asking for your help in meeting a $7500 matching grant generously sponsored by Burton Kassell. We received a tremendous response. In less than two weeks we have successfully met this challenge, well ahead of our December 31st deadline. Amazing! Thank you for your immediate and unsparing support!

It is only through the collective efforts with our membership that we can take on needed improvements to Southlands. As the capital project funded by the Kassell Challenge comes to fruition on the property, we will let you know – and you will see how your generosity directly contributes to making Southlands the very special place that it is.


Thank you,

Rebecca Gott, Chair of The Southlands Fundraising Committee
