How are funds raised?
For a suggested donation (we recommend a minimum of $5 per family), your supporters have access to unlimited rides on the Heritage Carousel. All persons who just happen to come to ride the Carousel during your event will be requested to either make the minimum suggested donation for unlimited rides or pay the regular riding fee per ride, which will also go toward the fundraising proceeds. (Carousel Season Pass holders who come to ride during open hours will not be required to make a donation but will be notified of your cause.) The income generated from the ride donations/fees and any other fundraising activities organized that evening is split 50/50 between your group and the Heritage Carousel. Carousel vending and merchandise will not be promoted during the event but any sales will be excluded from the fundraising proceeds.
Not only do you raise funds for your group with this event, you raise FUN! The Carousel is a great place for families to have fun and spend time with friends. It is a hand-carved, hand painted work of art that turns to the music of an authentic band organ. It is enjoyed by persons of all ages. Union Park offers multi-age play equipment and large open spaces for group activities. These fundraising events not only support your group’s efforts but will help the Carousel, also a non-profit entity, remain available, affordable and able to continue making memories for children and families all around Central Iowa.
