Central Market Trust Raise The Roof Campaign
Jan 26, 2017 12:14AM
The Central Market Trust Raise The Roof campaign will continue to share Market Love this February. Sign a Slate events, when donors can sign one of the slate tiles to be used on the new roof, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, February 11 and 14, at Central Market, and at 7 p.m., February 16, at Tellus360. Beginning at 8 p.m., The Willie Marble Xperience will play a benefit concert for ages 21 and over, with 100 percent of ticket sales donated to the campaign.
During previous events, people have shared, and created, stories. Marriage proposals, anniversary celebrations, loving tributes, family reminiscences and stand holder memories have all demonstrated the deep connection between the community and Central Market.
The campaign was established to raise funds to replace the aging asphalt roof with its original material, slate, which will cost $1.5 million. As a historic building recognized by the Register of Historic Places, it is recommended that the roof be restored to its original material. The anticipated life of the slate roof is 100 years, which means that this generation has the chance to invest in a building that has enriched the community and ensure that it remains a central hub for the next generation.
Cost: $100 or more/slate; $10 suggested concert donation. Location: Central Market, 23 N. Market St., Lancaster; Tellus360, 24 E. King St., Lancaster. For more information, visit LancastersCentralMarket.com.
