Brick Program Fundraiser

Meanwhile, the RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum continues to run its Brick Program Fundraiser through Aug. 31 with the tax deductible donation qualifying as a donation toward the Ingram family’s $100,000 Challenge Grant.

There are three ways individuals or companies and organizations can participate in the Brick Program Fundraiser.
