Half of the Funds Raised for the Karras & Kaul - RAGBRAI Founders Statue
- 2 July, 2019
Thank you to all of the wonderful people and teams that have contributed so far to the RAGBRAI: River to River sculpture commemorating John Karras and Donald Kaul. To date, over $100,000 has been raised for the $200,000 project. RAGBRAI teams and friends have raised over $50,000 and RAGBRAI has earmarked $50,000 towards the statue. mainly due to registrations from the RAGBRAI Training Series events (Pigtails, BACooN RIDE and Big Rove)
So as Carl Voss says, “We have the money for Donald Kaul’s statue, now we need the funds for John Karras’ statue!”
To contribute online: https://dsmpublicartfoundation.org/eforms/karras-kaul-sculpture/6/
Teams that contribute at the $1,000 or more level will be recognized on a placard at the sculpture in Water Works Park in Des Moines. To date, these are the team that have reached that level. We have room for 100 more teams! The deadline to make the statue placard is August 15, 2019. There will also be a booth at the RAGBRAI Expo to collect donations and discuss the project.
