Little Rock, AR – The Friends of Dreamland Ballroom, the non-profit group dedicated to the restoration of the historic Dreamland Ballroom
is excited to announce their first fundraising campaign – Pave the Way.
They will be selling custom engraved bricks that will be placed at the entrance of the ballroom. They have two sizes available; a 4×8 inch brick that holds 65 characters and an 8×8 that holds 120 characters. A $100 donation gets the smaller brick and the larger can be had for a donation of $250.
Kerry McCoy, President of the Friends of Dreamland says, “We think the ‘Pave the Way’ campaign is a great way to get the local community involved in this great project. We would love to see the names of people that have a connection to the history of this building lining the sidewalk up to the front door”.
