BE PART OF THE FOUNDERS WALL

BE PART OF THE FOUNDERS WALL

The architects have promised a Founders Wall you’ll want to be a part of! The concept is inspired by the noble Nopal or Prickly Pear Cactus, known for its resilience, adaptability, growth, and culinary and medicinal use.

“I see the cactus plant as a cultural interpretation of The Tree of Life. The cactus plant grounds us, provides  nourishment, healing, and allows for growth and re-generation through its leaves and fruit, providing hope and inspiration for now and the future.” — Ofelia Valdez-Yeager, Campaign Chair

The Founders Wall will include the names of individuals who were first to pledge their support for The Cheech with donations at $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, etc. The prominence of naming placement increases with giving levels, as do the benefits. This opportunity expires after December 31, 2019. When visitors across the nation come to The Cheech, be sure your name and support is memorialized for all to see!
