THE future of the Hakoah Club at White City will be determined within 45 days.
“We are at the pointy end of the business, but I believe we will get it over the line,” Hakoah Club president Steven Lowy told The AJN in an exclusive interview.
Plans have been submitted to council, communal consultation has taken place and a business model has been determined; all that is left now is the fundraising to build the facility.
If the fundraising events over the next three weeks, which start tonight (Thursday), are successful then construction should commence in late 2020 and that facility could open in 2023.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a transformational change.
“The lead and major donor families are expected to cover the bulk of the fundraising, and then various categories of memberships will be offered to the community in the first half of next year.”
