BRICK PAVER FUNDRAISER


We are soliciting your support for a major fundraiser project at the Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park and Museum. This project presents an opportunity for you, the public, to purchase an engraved brick paver with the name of your choice permanently engraved on the brick. Your brick will be located in the Walkway of Freedom; which extends from the Moore Family Home Replica to the Gazebo with the Twin Reflecting Pool/Flowing Water Fountain merged in between.

Harry and his wife Harriette were the first true civil rights activists of the modern civil rights era in the State of Florida. In 1951 after celebrating Christmas Day, civil rights activist Harry T. Moore and his wife Harriette retired to bed in their white frame home tucked away in a small orange grove in Mims, Florida. A bomb shattered their home a few minutes after they went to bed. Harry Moore died on the way to the hospital; his wife died nine days later.

The Memorial Park and Cultural Center was opened in 2004 and has become a national civil rights resource and tourist center that links the historical trail of the Moore's and other early civil rights pioneers. The Moore Cultural Complex is a 501 (C) 3 not for profit organization that was formed to support the programmatic and physical enhancement of the Moore Memorial Park and Cultural Center in Mims. The park is owned and operated by Northern Brevard County Parks and Recreation. However, we, the Board of Directors must conduct a successful fundraiser in order to finance the programmatic and physical enhancements of the center and we need your support to make this happen.

We appreciate your support and believe that you will be happy with your engraved brick on the Moore's Walkway of Freedom.
