Reds Hall of Fame announces Legacy Brick Campaign
Purchase a personalized brick to support the Hall of Fame's statue projects
The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is offering fans the opportunity to build their own legacy at Great American Ball Park and support the museum's statue projects by sponsoring a new personalized brick paver at the entrance to the museum.
The Legacy Brick Campaign includes a limited number bricks outside Great American Ball Park. Upon ordering, you can choose from the following locations:
- At the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum entrance
- Surrounding the Johnny Bench statue near the Hall's entrance
- Surrounding the forthcoming Joe Morgan statue (to be dedicated in Sept. 2013 and location to be determined)
Proceeds from the Legacy Brick Campaign will support the Hall of Fame's efforts to preserve and promote Reds history and the creation of statues of Reds legends around the ballpark, beginning with Joe Morgan's which is scheduled for unveiling during the 2013 baseball season.
"For everyone, attending a game at the ballpark has a special meaning and is a place where memories are made and families and friends connect," said Rick Walls, Reds Hall of Fame and Museum executive director. "Participating in the brick campaign will allow fans to celebrate an important day or moment, recognize a special person in their life, or record a memory, while at the same time support a worthy cause."
Personalized bricks are available in two sizes, 4"x8" and 8"x8", with prices beginning at $150.
A brick sponsorship includes an installed legacy brick, a complimentary replica brick with affixed commemorative plaque and an individually numbered keepsake certificate suitable for framing. Shipping is included to the 48 contiguous United States (excludes HI and AK).
Bricks can be ordered online at RedsMuseum.org or by calling 1-855-FAN-BRIX.
The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is a 501(c)(3) organization and therefore a portion of your contribution may be tax-deductible as allowable by law.
Installation of bricks at the Hall entrance and Johnny Bench statue are currently scheduled for July. The bricks around the Morgan statue will be installed in September.
