manufacturing, amusement, real estate, and publishing. Nic Parks said, ”I am

thrilled to be involved with a campaign that does so much good in our

community through raising awareness and funds for 10 great charities. I’m

hoping that The Arcade can contribute to this cause for years to come.”

With 10 life-size fiberglass tiger statues that will be individually designed and

decorated by local artists, Tigers on the Prowl aims to provide a fun and

engaging experience for the local community and its many worthy causes.

The Andersons and The Parks will work with Tigers on the Prowl to build local

support and awareness for the initiative over the next five months.

On July 24, the “Unleashing of the Tigers” event will take place at Columbia

Mall. The unveiling serves as the first chance for the public to see the

completed tigers, bringing together the artists, charities and sponsors.
