The parking is done by various churches and school organizations every year as a fundraiser. It's not like they are pocketing the money. The play area is also run by charities. They allow people onto their property which turfs their ground and then people litter everywhere. It's a fun community activity that you CHOSE to go to and u are complaining about a charity or school organization getting $5??????? You are the type of person we don't need in this community- not the Reid's

Then the parking fee should be a voluntary donation. After you park your car a person should have a bucket to drop $ in if you chose. This is a local business NOT Disneyland parking. I would expect a high rate in a tourist place not here in Owensboro. As far as the litter have your charities volunteer to clean up the mess. They are the ones that made the MESS!

Sounds like this was written by someone benefitting from the kickback. 5 bucks a pop adds up! I'd like to see how all that money is accounted for.

Various bands, girls inc., jr ROTC are jus some of the organizations that raise money from this. Reid's is a business not a charity for your entertainment.

If you think that $5 is a high rate then you obviously haven't left owensboro much. And if they were out there with buckets cheap a$$s like your self definitely wouldn't be donating!

$5 is high?????? You don't leave town much. Go to any event in Louisville and you are paying a minimum of $10 and more like $20. Reid's is a business and yet they choose to allow 2 money making opportunities go to charities- geez, what horrible people. How about they make all the visitors stay and pick up the trash- they are the ones making messes- not the charities. If you would like to see an accounting of the money they spend- all charities have books you can look at and I'm sure that school organizations would also be thrilled to show you where your measly $5 went. Why did u even go if you didn't want to pay to park? Reid's, which is a business (the point is to make money) tries to do something nice for the community and for charities and schools and they are money hungry bastards??????? I don't know why they bother- no one around here appreciates anything. They just expect stuff for free- like they are owed. Pathetic

I don't benefit at all. I didn't even go this year. As I said before- I you'd like to see how your little $5 was spent- contact the organization who parked cars this year. And next time you use a parking garage in any area, ask to see their books so you can see where your $20 goes.

That makes me mad... Churches extorting money from the citizens. I don't want my money going to churches.

I stand corrected- it is not churches. Just various charities and school organizations. I know they take turns. For instance, this year CASA worked the play area and made the money.

I'll still be a crybaby unless it's straight up non-religious charities receiving the money. Just got my registration notices in the mail for my cars and between that and omu charging me school taxes, too, the schools here get plenty of money from me.

Mcdonalds is a business with a Ronald Mcdonald Charity for sick children but MCD don't charge a mandatory parking fee and call it a "donation." Reids is pretending to do something good for the community to get their name out. Reids should donate $ by matching whatever would be left in a donation bucket.

Most events, fairs & festivals charge you to park. Most of the parking fees paid goes directly to businesses. Reid's parking fee goes to Jr ROTC. Jr ROTC cadets does the parking and deserves to be paid for it. Bet you don't work for free! Next year, gather all your friends & volunteer to park! Then you shouldn't have to pay for parking. Oh don't forget to bring your lunch & dinner as well drinks.
