GeMROI, Team Pohanka the latest to join; final participant to be announced soon


The City of Fredericksburg needed 12 Fredanthropists to step up to meet the City’s financial needs for the construction of the roller-hockey rink at Dixon Park. Twelve generous corporate and individual sponsors have now done just that.

The City is delighted to announce that it has received commitments from 12 Fredanthropists for 2019-20 – the inaugural year of the philanthropic program.

Team Pohanka (Honda, Hyundai, Nissan) and The GeMROI Company are the latest local companies to join the program. They join Hilldrup, Rappahannock Development Group, Lidl, Coldwell Banker Elite, Mrs. Mary Jane O’Neill, Mary Washington Healthcare, LifeCare Medical Transports, ILM Corporation and Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw.

The identity of the 12th and final 2019-20 Fredanthropist will be announced soon.

In exchange for their support, Fredanthropists will receive year-long recognition, including being named on a rink-side dasher board at the Dixon Park rink, in the Fred Focus weekly newsletter and Parks and Recreation catalogs, and on Fredanthropist.org. They will also receive a special commemorative plaque recognizing their Fredanthropist designation.

The hockey rink is anticipated to be operational this summer thanks in large part to the generosity of these 12 Fredanthropists.
