Open Arms Therapy needs your help!

Posted by: tdt -

It was recently brought to our attention that there may be an opportunity for Open Arms Therapy to win a large metal Mueller building that could be used to facilitate the therapeutic riding center.  

The official Contest Terms and Conditions Prize is listed as: One (1) Mueller metal building constructed by MI and associated vendors. The recipient organization must complete a final agreement. Prize is not transferrable. Prize will be awarded by July 3, 2009. The selected organization must provide foundation, electrical, plumbing, paving, and other infrastructure deemed necessary. Mueller, Inc. will be responsible for the metal structure only. The organization’s infrastructure must be in place by September 15, 2009 before building erection. The selected organization is also responsible for checking local building codes and acquiring any necessary construction permits. Building construction must be complete by October 31, 2009. 

With the contest entry deadline set for June 1, 2009, there is very little time.  OAT must complete their nonprofit incorporation as part of the contest requirements as well as acquire land and secure the materials and labor for the infrastructure of the building.  We are in need of several sizable monetary donations and/or donations of land, services and labor.
