Shade our Kids!

Monday, February 9, 2015 @ 12:02 PM - Posted by Hendrik Bisanz

By now most of you have heard about our project called “Shade our Kids!” and many started wondering what a shade solution for our playground could look like. The image below is what we currently envision. However, what we can afford will have the final say in how esthetically integrative the final design will be. Luckily, what you see is a favorable solution and also on the lower end of the budget. The cost for shade is in the poles. The structure will have to withstand highest wind speeds, thus the poles have to be massive and go deep into the ground. A project like this gets quoted between $20K and $45K.  The city of T.I. will not finance such a project on its own but will most certainly contribute if we manage the project and provide part of the funds. We are in touch with the Philip A. Bryant Melanoma Foundation which supports shade for playground projects in the Tampa Bay area via fundraising. We are raising funds ourselves, too. $3 of all ticket sales for this year’s Italian Night will go towards funding and we seek your voluntary contributions as outlined in the following PDF: Fundraise Sheet.
