Project Details

Start Date: 15 March 2017

End Date: 15 March 2020

Money Goal: $150,000


This project is to raise funds for improvements at HPEC intended to improve its economic benefit to the Town of Queen Creek.   Several possible projects have been identified: 1) covering arena 3, improvements to arena 1 (e.g. improving the sound), and a permanent show office building.

From our perspective, covering Arena 3 provides the best improvement to HPEC and would allow the site to recover ALL it’s operating and maintenance costs.   See the supporting information below for details.

In order to support the wish of some large donors, donations over $500 can request a separate agreement stating their money will be returned if it is not used for covering Arena 3.

FOHP started the fundraising with $5000 direct donation and $5000 to match donations between $20 and $500.

Donations are accepted by cash, check to Friends of Horseshoe Park, Cash and online (here)
