Richlandopoly

MANSFIELD -- Haring Realty presents their 4th annual “Richlandopoly” giant board game fundraiser on June 4th at The Brickyard.

Haring Realty, in cooperation with the United Way of Richland County’s Dash for the Goal, is once again presenting their live-action, life-size board game event, “Richlandopoly”. The event had its inaugural year in 2018, providing an exciting and interactive way for employees of Richland County businesses to come together for a cause that will directly impact our community.

Money is raised when local businesses sponsor a property on the “board” or when they gather a team to physically play the game. Teams create their own oversize game pieces to move around the 20’x20’ board, roll 2’ dice, exchange giant money and may even end up in a life-size “jail”.

Eight teams from area businesses have paid to play the 2021 game, many of whom played last year, and had such an enjoyable time that they jumped at the chance to play again this year. David Yoder with Richland Source, a collaborator on the first annual event says, ”from its inception, this event was designed to bring people together and celebrate what we share in Richland County. I think in the first year we successfully created an atmosphere that was fun and lively.”

This year, Haring Realty, together with more than 40 local businesses, is planning to increase the amount raised beyond the $12,000 that was presented to the United Way at the end of last year’s event. The Haring Realty team intends to grow community participation and is devising more opportunities for audience participation and chances for observers to win prizes during the game. Raffle tickets for door prizes and gift baskets will be available.

The event will be held at The Brickyard (Downtown Mansfield) on June 4th with a rain date of June 18th. Game play will begin at 11am and concludes at 1pm (or so) with the team with the most money being awarded the “Richlandopoly 2021 Winner” trophy.
